Vision Assessment

Functional Low Vision Assessments

NCBI provides functional low vision assessments to determine level and impact of vision loss for individuals of all ages with sight loss. We also offer a range of solutions to enable people to either maximise their residual vision or compensate for vision loss.
Vision Assessments are conducted by our skilled staff, who specilaise with supports across the Lifecycle Model. NCBI’s Children and Young Person’s Team works to support individuals aged 0-18 and their families with age and situation appropriate, and personalised interventions and referrals to both NCBI and community based services.
NCBI’s Assessment Services are provided nationally.

Physical & Telehealth Assessments

ChildVision’s National Network Service team provides assessments for all children in Ireland diagnosed with a visual impairment (visual acuity, XXX).
The team is comprised of members of our early intervention, clinical and nusing specialists, working together to identify needs and abilities. We conduct five types of assessment:
  1. Early years Arena assessment, available to children from birth to 5 years
  2. Multi-disciplinary assessment, available for ages 5-23 years
  3. ADOS -2 assessment (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) for ages 3- 16 years
  4. A yearly review of the needs of every term time living student attending ChildVision
These assessments take place at our Dublin campus and some at our satellite centre in Cork.
We also have a telehealth platform available on our website where you can book a video consult with our Clinical head to ask any questions about your child’s needs, completely free of charge from the comfort of your own home anywhere in Ireland.
