The idea of “fun” can often be forgotten in the chaos of medical appointments, paperwork, and the stress of worrying for your baby when you are raising a child who has special needs.

In this session, Amy Pybus, M.Ed., TVI, discusses the importance of finding fun and playing, especially through hands-on play, for children with visual impairment. We’ll talk about incorporating play into the day, communicating through connecting with your child, turning your recycling into sensory toys, and adapting commercial toys for use with switches. Participants will create a make and take toy using common household items. Our main focus will be on how important it is to find the magical moments when you can connect with your child, and how those can happen any time if you are present for them.
