Services

Blind Babies Foundation has been providing critical early intervention and education services to infants and preschoolers who are blind or visually impaired for 60 years. Our family-centered services are provided in the home environment and encourage every child’s development to the fullest degree possible with careful attention to their individual abilities and needs. Through our Access VIS program, our Vision Impairment Specialists help more than 560 children each year in 14 central and northern California counties at no cost to families.



"Our son has a visual impairment which put us on a hunt for some sound help and direction. We have been on a medical and emotional roller-coaster and we can wholeheartedly say that having BBF at our side has made this trying time much easier to handle."  - Steve & Jody C. of Lodi, California


Why Use Our Services?

The birth of a baby marks the beginning of many challenges for a family. With a baby who is visually impaired, the challenges are more complex. The early intervention program of BBF, called Access VIS, helps the entire family adjust by:

  • providing parent education
  • providing information -supporting the parent/child relationship
  • connecting the family to resources
  • attending medical visits with families
  • administering visual and developmental assessments
  • referral to other agencies
  • supporting family advocacy skills
  • giving opportunities for families to meet and to learn from one another
