A 2-year-old child with cerebral visual impairment (CVI) was brought by the mother to the pediatric ophthalmology clinic. She underwent a detailed functional vision and developmental assessment that revealed impairments in visual developmental skills, sensory, motor, and social skills. She was admitted into an integrated, parent-centered, structured early intervention program specifically designed for her for 3-months after which there were improvements noticed in visual developmental skills such as visual fixation, attention, and tracking; sensory skills such as tactile, olfactory, and gustatory; motor skills, including neck control and fine motor grasping; and age-appropriate social and communication skills. Through this case report, we aim to bring out the benefits of an evidence-based systematic early intervention approach in a child with CVI.
