Get Ready, Get Set, Go! A Guide for Parents of Visually Impaired Children.
Written by a kindergarten teacher in a school for blind children, the booklet is designed to give parents insights and guidelines to help prepare their visually handicapped child for school. Part I reviews characteristics of learning. Part II focuses on how children learn. A third section, which makes up most of the document, offers guidelines in the following areas: sensory awareness; language; body image; self care skills (eating, dressing, lacing, putting away clothes, toilet training, washing, sleeping); gross motor abilities; small muscle abilities; planned motor training; orientation and mobility; learning to play; and use of remaining vision. A final section offers suggestions for behavior management and includes a bibliography. (SBH)
