- Children 0-14 years with blindness or low vision and their families
What we offer:
Our approach is:
In addition to clinical activities, the Foundation offers:
All services offered are free of charge.
The Padua Center offers diagnostic and functional consultations (for children from 0 to 8 years) and support courses (for children from 0 to 14 years).
During the consultation, through observation and multidisciplinary evaluation by professionals of the Centre, we try to answer parents’ requests with diagnostic in-depth analysis and better understanding of the "low vision and blindness world”.
At the end of the consultancy, the Centre may start to provide a therapy as outpatient which provides a customized proposal to individuals or groups with educational and rehabilitative interventions.
The Center remains available for advice to both health workers and school personnel.
