Moving and Doing: How To Help Visually Impaired Children Know Their World. Second Edition.
Muste, Jean; Fellows, Rae R.
Intended for parents, the manual contains suggestions for play and games with visually impaired children. Parents are advised to tell the children what they are doing and using while engaged in activities, to increase their knowledge of the world and of themselves. Ideas span eight areas: body awareness (touching body parts while naming them); spatial relations (exploring a ladder); balance (rolling from side to side); gross motor (reaching for toys with continuous sounds); fine motor (taking objects out and putting them in containers); locomotor (playing a first version of "tag"); vision stimulation (playing games with mirrors); and songs and rhythm games (singing simple songs with accompanying fingerplays). Each section explains the concept area and includes information on materials or equipment. (CL)
