Through simple activities outlined in this book, parents, caregivers, teachers, health and rehabilitation workers, and others, are shown how to help children with vision problems develop all their capabilities. Using their other senses – hearing, touch, smell and taste – vision-impaired children are helped to explore, learn and interact with the world. Topics include: assessing how much a child can see, preventing blindness, moving around safely, preparing for child care or school, supporting parents of blind children, and teaching common activities like eating, dressing and keeping clean. With the support and encouragement of their families and neighbours, and guidance from this book, blind children can grow up to be important and active members of their communities.
