Learning to Play--Common Concerns for the Visually Impaired Preschool Child.
Recchia, Susan L.
Certain play situations are very difficult for young visually impaired children. This booklet focuses on three areas of play: exploring toys and materials, making transitions from one activity to another, and playing with other children. Through anecdotal descriptions of common situations encountered by caregivers, the booklet discusses why these areas of play sometimes pose problems for blind children and shares suggestions for resolving them.
