Give Equine Therapy

To a blind child in Ireland, your Gift of Equine Therapy is like a secret surprise. That’s because, without their even knowing it, riding a ChildVision equine-assisted therapy horse helps them to build coordination, core strength, muscle tone, and sit upright! Even if a child is completely blind and may have trouble communicating, ‘horse sense’ can change everything. Before long their balance, communication skills, and confidence soar, all thanks to your gift of joy and generosity!

Give a Sensory Story Session

When you are very small and have severe sight loss, the world can seem a scary place. And it’s easy to shrink away. But with your Gift of a Sensory Story Session, even our littlest learners can be part of the action! Special multisensory ‘story sacks’ complete with bells that jingle, book props to touch and feel, and even the happy aroma of hot cocoa, let visually impaired children discover and build an image of their world through taste, touch, scent, and sound, activating new areas of the brain that spark big growth… because you helped make it possible.

Give a Braille Book

After copyrighting permissions, scanning, braille embossing, binding, and materials, it’s easy to see why a braille leisure book like Harry Potter costs as much as €800! But without braille, our blind children and young people could never achieve full literacy. In fact, reading in braille activates the same regions of a blind reader’s brain as when you read a standard book in print – and ChildVision’s lending library is the only place for blind children to go in Ireland. Your Gift of a Braille Book will bring a bounty of braille to visually impaired boys and girls right here at home.

Give the Magic of Music

You don’t need the voice of a songbird to know that singing and music touch our hearts and our brains like nothing else can. And for a child with sight loss and multiple disabilities who mightn’t otherwise learn speech and language, your Gift of Music is positively life-changing. Starting before she was even six, little Aoibhinn’s language skills improved by leaps and bounds with the help of music therapy like the kind you can give.

Give a Vision Assessment

Most people aren’t aware that children who are blind can have what’s called ‘residual vision’ – tiny bits of remaining sight that could help them immensely as they grow and learn. Your Gift of a Vision Assessment helps reveal what’s possible: creating a baseline for each child’s visual impairment, exploring what bits of vision they may still have, and how to make the most of that. More than 400 children and young people across Ireland come to us in need of a specialised vision assessment every year. Your gift of joy and generosity can help to provide the resources we need to provide them.

Give assistive technology

Our visually impaired learners are mastering so much about the world around them. Those who are able to read braille struggles to keep up because their advanced braille schoolbooks are getting larger and larger. With a portable electronic braille display like the BrailleNote Apex, they can could load all their braille files onto one device – relief! – and an iPad Mini adapted for things like voice navigation let them use the screen like their sighted friends.

Give the Gift of Tomorrow

Give the gift of tomorrow with your pledge of €21 or more monthly to a blind child at ChildVision, and you will guide a boy or girl through the years, birth through aged 23.

Please help if you can.
