Vision Australia Support for children, adolescents and families.
Every child is unique, and as a parent you know they interact and learn in their own wonderful way. Finding out your child has vision loss can turn your world upside down. You may have all sorts of questions. What does the future hold for them? How will they manage at school? How will this affect our family?
Much of what we learn in life is through watching. So children with vision loss need to gather information about their world in different ways, and parents are their first and favourite teacher.
At Vision Australia we offer your family a personalised approach and innovative solutions tailored to the needs of your child. Vision Australia will be with you and your family throughout your child's life – from birth and first steps, starting school and discovering their talents to graduating, finding after-school jobs and making the most of adulthood.
You will get the support you need to be the expert on your child’s situation. This includes becoming confident in the choices you make for them and proven approaches to help them realise their potential.
In collaboration with you, your Vision Australia support person will access the expertise of our allied health team, professionals and specialist staff to develop strategies that suit your child’s needs. Your child can learn and master important life skills including:
- Daily routines such as mealtime and family outings
- Playing, moving and exploring
- Using language and listening
- Social skills such as sharing and joining in
Your personal support person will meet with you and your child in your home, your closest Vision Australia office or wherever you feel most comfortable. They will work with you so that your child can enjoy a smooth and successful transition to school.
Vision Australia supports people of all ages who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose. Contact us for more information visionaustralia.org

Anxiety is a normal part of life and can affect anyone, including children. But as parents and carers, it’s sometimes hard to know the difference between normal worries and something more serious.
Anxiety during childhood
Anxiety is a normal part of childhood. In most cases, anxiety in children is short-lived and goes away after a while. Some examples of normal worries might be:
- being shy or being worrying about being laughed at
- being upset before and/or after being left at childcare or school
- worrying about schoolwork, sport or their health
But many children experience anxiety more intensely and more often than other children, stopping them from getting the most out of life.
Signs of anxiety in children
If a child is often anxious, they might:
Supporting children with anxiety
- try to avoid the situation or issue they’re worried about
- get headaches and stomach aches often, especially when away from home
- have trouble sleeping or have vivid nightmares
- worry often
- need a lot of reassurance
- want things to be perfect and get upset if they’re not
You can support your child by:
Treating anxiety in children
- acknowledging your child’s fears – don’t dismiss or ignore them
- gently encouraging your child to do things they’re anxious about
- waiting until your child actually gets anxious before you step in to help
- praising your child for doing something they’re anxious about
- avoiding labelling your child as ‘shy’ or ‘anxious’
Kids’ mental health is important. If you’re concerned, see your doctor, a psychologist or a mental health service. Some children have an anxiety disorder, such as:
- a phobia
- generalised anxiety disorder
- separation anxiety.
Children who have severe anxiety can benefit from psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or, in rare cases, medication.
