Empowering children with greater independence and mobility

On our Child Mobility Programme, children and young adults are taught skills such as long cane training and daily living skills. We offer them assistance to support their learning experience, such as accessing information and participating in PE.

We work with children or young adults, their parents/guardians, their teacher and the school in order to enhance our students’ quality of life.

We also provide schools, parents and guardians with hints and tips on how to make their environment more accessible for the visually impaired student.

This programme is only available in Cork, Tipperary and Waterford and can be accessed through direct referral from Visiting Teacher Services provided by the Department of Education and Skills.
