Since its inception in 1906, the Chicago Lighthouse has served the blind, the visually impaired, the disabled, and veterans. The organization provides an array of services to those it serves such as rehabilitation, education, employment opportunities, and technology. In total, there are 40 services and programs that the organization offers.
One of these is the Birth-to-Three Early Intervention Program, which provides family support to parents with infants and toddlers who have vision loss along with other disabilities. To help both parent and child, intervention specialists regularly visit the families in order to support parents and help them prepare their young children for preschool and kindergarten. Support comes in the form of visual, developmental, and occupational therapy, as well as medical examinations and psychological services.
