A Home-Based Media Approach for Developing Critical Skills in Young Visually Impaired Children. Final Report.
Moore, Sheri Bortner
The final report summarizes beginnings as well as accomplishments of a program designed to develop materials for parents and teachers working with visually impaired children at the birth-24 month developmental level. The focus of the materials was to help parents and teachers prevent and remediate developmental lags associated with visual impairment and concomitant conditions. The project featured three major components: tangible, electronic child-use items (an electronic mat and a head device); a slide-cassette program; and a guidebook for parents and teachers. Project activities are described chronologically from the developmental process through results of an evaluation by over 200 consumers. The slide-cassette program and guidebook were evaluated in rural and urban environments and included Black, Spanish speaking, and Native American infants and their families. (CL)
