Product Description

Most infants and toddlers who are visually impaired have some functional vision that they will be able to use for everyday activities and that can be used to support their learning and development. Early intervention services are essential for these children, not only to ensure their early development but also to help them learn to use their vision with maximum effectiveness, right from the start. Everyday Activities to Promote Visual Efficiency offers guiding principles for early intervention with very young children who are visually impaired and who may also have additional disabilities. This important new resource then provides simple activities that can be incorporated easily by families and service providers into the everyday routines of a baby or child to facilitate early visual development and use of functional vision.
