Development of Symbolic Play in Visually Impaired Young Children.
Rogers, Sally J.; Puchalski, Carol B.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v3 n4 p57-63 Jan 1984
The beginnings of representational play were examined in 16 visually impaired children (18-38 months). Nine children demonstrated some symbolic acts at a mean age significantly earlier than the literature suggests. Presence of symbolic acts was significantly related to use of the word "no," two-word combinations, and general sensorimotor skills. (Author/CL)
