Impacts of Vision Loss on a Child’s Development
February 8, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
Date: Monday February 8, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 (Eastern)
Visual impairment affects all areas of your child’s development. Babies and toddlers gain knowledge and skills by interacting with objects, the environment, and other people. Since visual impairment may decrease motivation to explore and interact, teachers and families must make adaptations to both materials and instructional methods. This session will describe each of the 5 developmental domains, how visual impairment alters skill acquisition in each area, and what parents can do to encourage their children to reach for the next developmental step.
