Independence Training for Visually Handicapped Children Hardback
by Doris Tooze
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Children and Disability series
First published in 1981, this book was written to help parents and teachers to participate in child-based mobility programmes, covering the needs of visually-handicapped children from pre-school to adulthood.
It gives insight into ways in which these figures can make the world meaningful to young children, as well as making them aware of the special training that is necessary to develop the social skills of daily living that a sighted child acquires through imitation.
Travel techniques must be learnt to enable these children to move independently and the book describes various methods that can be used by the blind traveller.
It also examines the role of physical education and dance, both of particular importance for the visually-handicapped child at school age.
