Get a Wiggle On: A Guide for Helping Visually Impaired Children Grow.
Raynor, Sherry; Drouillard, Richard
A booklet intended for parents and other individuals in contact with the blind or visually impaired infant provides suggestions for aiding in the child's growth and development. Presented from the viewpoint of the visually impaired child, the author emphasizes sharpening of the intact senses through such activities as talking to, carrying, and touching the child often. Permitting exploration and providing sound cues are seen to be particularly important. (Author/SB)
