Summary:

This handbook is designed for parents and teachers of children with dual sensory impairments and other physical limitations. It contains practical, affordable and easily implemented suggestions for enhancing a child's learning and mobility by making the environment more visible. A child's use of functional vision can be greatly enhanced through observation of the child and experimentation with the environment, combined with knowledge of the visual disorder and how vision is affected. The child's cognitive ability, psychological makeup, level of motivation, social relationships and support system will also affect how the child approaches his or her visual impairment and the challenges it presents. The handbook discusses indoor environments, outdoor environments, and augmentative communication systems. Eight references are included.
