Product Description

How do children become social beings? When a child is unable to observe visually and imitate how other people react, this complex developmental process can become fragmented, and incomplete. As a result, providing specific information, direct instruction, and opportunities for social interaction to children who are blind or visually impaired is critical to their growth and education.

Edited by two groundbreaking educators and researchers, with contributions from other educators and researchers in this area, Teaching Social Skills to Students with Visual Impairments: From Theory to Practice explores what theory can tell us about how children who are visually impaired become socially skilled individuals. It then, presents a compendium of techniques and strategies for helping youngsters, from preschoolers through young adults, including those with additional disabilities, develop and refine social skills.
