Identifying Developmental Patterns of Normal and High Risk Visually Impaired Infants: Development of an Assessment Protocol.
Hall, Amanda; And Others
The report reviews assessment guidelines developed for visually impaired infants (birth-24 months). Project staff examined research on the assessment of infants with vision loss and identified material relevant to their needs. Following a review of existing assessment tools, guidelines were prepared in the following areas: social competence, communicative competence, play, and cognitive development. In addition, charts depict expected age and clarification notes for the development of functional vision, social/emotional skills, language development, cognitive development (including object performance, schemes for relating to objects, fine motor development, and gross motor development). A list of considerations is also included for the assessment of the home environment. Detailed recommendations for assessment and research are located in the appendix to the report. (CL)
