You might try posting your question on the FamilyConnect message boards, too:

FamilyConnect is jointly hosted by AFB and the National Association for Parents of Children Who Are Visually Impaired (NAPVI), and there are a lot of good articles there, as well as experienced parents who will probably have useful suggestions. Best of luck to you - please keep us posted.

Is anyone help Early Childhood Intervention helping him out with that? There are workers who can help teach things like crawling, cruising and walking. As well, it's also useful to teach basic skills early on, since everything else builds on basic skills.
