Hi Moms and Dads,

I have a three year old daughter who is completely blind (Today is her 3rd birthday) She was diagnosed with LCA rpgrip1 subtype. Theoretically this subtype should only affect vision. However, since her blindness was confirmed we started doing all kinds of therapy interventions, PT, OT, SP, and soon ABA. She doesn't have a lot of behavioral problems. The reason she got ASD diagnosis was primarily because of her extreme severe language delays.

These film makers have been busy, dissecting and reimagining their own views of blindness. They are all very different; one is still in the production stages. But if you’re interested in exploring themes around blindness, check these out.

My friend was wearing a shirt that was black and white, the pattern was of flowers all swirled around. I complimented her on it, and she said that a child we both know, a lovely boy with severe visual impairment among other challenges, loved that everytime she wore it. He got really excited because he could see it. If caregivers wore this type of clothing, it would help the child see more. Maybe patterns for fabrics could be tested on visually-challenged kids and a new line of clothing could be born. Love to all your babies. Ms. Sunne Ann

If your child has any sensory issues (and that's not at all unusual for kids with visual impairments), then you're probably fairly fluent in the language of sensory input.

From deep pressure and sensory brushing to squeezes and hugs, you've probably tried just about everything to help your child calm and find their center when they are in sensory overload or displaying self-injurious behaviors.

Sometimes all you need is a safe place for your child, a room where they can hit the walls or roll around on the floor and not worry about getting hurt. This UK-based company creates just that: safe rooms and safe beds custom made to the dimensions you need.
