The essence of this report is to identify ways in which services can be improved for vision impaired children who access Vision Australia Low Vision Clinic services. The method was to investigate programs provided overseas by attending the International Conference on Low Vision and conducting a visit to "The Lighthouse International Inc." Several key points have been identified in order to enhance the services currently provided by Vision Australia staff for .the targeted age group. These areas include being aware of and improving preparation required prior to intervention, improving the intervention itself and developing support services that could be provided after intervention. Enhancing Vision Australia services to younger consumers can be easily achieved. lt is important to recognise and further develop the knowledge and skills of professionals working within the organisation and develop closer networks with appropriate external service providers.
