Children With Developmental Challenges 3(2+1)

Lesson 13 : Educational Programmes for the Blind


As with all atypical children, the blind child’s basic needs and the goals for his education are not different from those of the ordinary child. It is only the means of achieving these goals that are different. The content material and subject matter as well as the attitude and understanding which are sought are the same as those for seeing children.

Lowenfeld states “Education must aim at giving the blind child a knowledge of realities around him, the confidence to cope with these realities and the feeling that he is recognized and accepted as an individual in his own right.”
