Troster, H.; Brambring, M.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v88 n5 p421-32 Sep-Oct 1994
Analysis of questionnaires completed by parents of 91 young blind children and 74 matched sighted children indicated that sighted children engaged in more complex levels of play at an earlier age; blind children interacted less frequently with other children than did sighted children; blind children preferred tactile-auditory games and toys; and blind children rarely engaged in symbolic games.
