Formal mobility and life skills training
Sight for Surrey has three Habilitation Specialists who provide orientation, mobility and life skills assessments and training. The Habilitation Specialists work with young people on an individual basis. The aim is to enable children to develop skills they need in order to live and travel safely independently and with confidence.
Parents, carers and teachers have a key role in working with our Habilitation Specialists to set targets and to reinforce new skills.
The service is funded by and delivered in partnership with Surrey County Council’s Physical and Sensory Service.
In addition we have a partnership contract with Blind Children UK enabling us to support families more effectively.
