Developmental Levels and Suggested Learning Activities for the Visually Impaired Preschool Child. A Special Report.
Harrell, Lois, Comp.
The paper presents developmental charts detailing the needs and patterns of very young visually impaired children. Five age levels are considered (0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-.25 years, 2.5-4 years, and 4-5 years) within the context of auditory awareness, body image, development of meaningful language, tactual awareness and manipulative skills, visual awareness, and locomotion and pre-orientation. Additional considerations noted include the need for extra early handling, the importance of encouraging exploration mannerisms, eating skills, toilet training, descriptive terminology, and the steps in promoting reading awareness.
