How can I help my blind baby develop?

My daughter has ONH and is almost 7 months old. What are some things that could help her reach some developmental milestones?

Some answers from our Facebook page:

  • Music is a great learning tool. Singing and touching along with the words! My Berkley (who is now 9 years old) has ONH and as a baby, she was like any other. She was curious and wanting to push her limits. Sometimes it is difficult, but "let go"! Let her explore the world as a baby will. She can learn on her own and with your guidance.
  • Start finger signing for babies. There is a book (or you can read this article about signing).
  • Use a Developmental Journal.
