How parents can help their blind baby
This booklet contains a lot of practical advice, descriptions of the ways children with visual impairments might experience things, and how to help them. The necessarily large quantity of advice reflects the extent to which the disability influences so many aspects of a child’s development. It often concerns things you can’t imagine yourself, because you have to learn to take a whole new and unfamiliar perspective. See this book as a reference source: if something goes wrong, you can use it to find out what you can do.
