    Hi @tinkerbell42 welcome to the community! I have moved your post to the visual impairment category.

    Is he your only son? I have three kids, they are teens now though, I miss having little ones!

    Hi
    Sorry to hear about your sun. I have a visual impairment which I have had since I was 11 (I am now 40) so don't worry ask away I know quite a bit about it.

    My little girl is 4, she has a cortical visual Impairement. She seems to be making really good progress, and she has a lot of other disabilities so the vision isn't a major issue for her - but we are still not sure how well she sees.

    We have had lots of support from a charity called Sense - have you been in touch with them? x

    Doh, only just spotted this forum so apologies if I resurrect a few threads.
