Lighthouse of SWFL provides its Early Intervention services to families and children (birth to age five) with visual impairments. Research indicates that 85% of what we learn before our sixth birthday is through our vision. For this reason, it’s imperative that children with visual impairments are identified early and accurately.

To qualify for our Early Intervention services, a child must be under the age of 5, diagnosed with a bilateral visual impairment that impacts his/her ability to function independently, with a reasonable expectation the child and family will benefit from our services.

Lighthouse of SWFL’s goal is to help families prepare their children to access the visual world in a non-visual manner. Family participation in the development and delivery of the service plan is an essential component. Services can be provided in the child’s/family’s home, day care, school, or center-based setting. Learning is structured around the family and is individualized around the child’s and family’s needs.
