In a normally developing, sighted infant, movement is motivated by what
the child sees. An infant with a vision impairment needs other types of
stimulation to encourage skills necessary to walk and move. Many concepts
must be developed early as a basis for orientation and mobility concepts
the chlid will learn when he or she enters school.
Where in the World am I contains many concepts and skills that
can be taught through play activities by parents, Teachers of the Visually
Impaired, Orientation and Mobility Specialists or Early Childhood teachers.
These activities can be incorporated into an ordinary day for a parent
or a classroom full of young children (with or without vision). The materials
used in these activities are easily purchased at any grocery store or
department store. Concepts and sensory development are explained, with
many photographs illustrating the various activities.
