We herein present a case of a 14-month-old child presented in the pediatric ophthalmology clinic, who sustained a head injury and had unconsciousness and status epilepticus. The child was diagnosed to have cerebral visual impairment (CVI), hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP), and global delay in developmental areas. After 167 center-based sessions and 120 home-based sessions of therapeutic intervention, a significant development in the child's functioning was noted and quantified using standard assessment tools like CVI range assessment and Developmental journal for babies and young children with visual Impairment (DJVI). At the age of 2.5 years, the CVI range assessment showed that the child from phase II has moved to phase III of visual development. On the DJVI scale, the child improved from performing 33% age-appropriate activities to 81% activities. This case is a clear example to show the importance of early intervention, an interdisciplinary team approach, and parental motivation and involvement in successful management.
