Early Years

Our Early years programme is for children from birth to six years.
Children and young people with all levels of low vision attend our Early Years but we also look after children who have a visual impairment and one of many additional disabilities, which we call MDVI (multi disabled visually impaired).
All the children have a diagnosis from an opthalmoogist or optometrist of a visual impairment that cannot be corrected by glasses or lenses, such as a visual acuity of 6/18 or less. We work with every child to help them make the most of what they can do, every day.
Many students attending our service also attend other services such as St. Michael’s House, Laura Lynn, NRH or their own local mainstream education provider.
Following Early Years the little ones go on to main stream primary, our a choice of primary schools offering supports suitable to the needs of the child.
We have an Early Years service in Dublin and Cork.
