The Infant Class provides free early interventions and educational services to babies and toddlers who are blind, visually impaired or multi-disabled. Our Infant Class teaches parents and other caregivers how to motivate and encourage their children — to initiate movement, sit and crawl, overcome fears of noise, and learn essential new skills, including feeding.
