VIPS Video Library: Hands on Experience: Tactual Learning and Skills, DVD
The VIPS Video Library from Visually Impaired Preschool Services is a series of essential videos on DVD for parents of young children who are visually impaired. These videos offer practical and proven techniques that foster the development of children who are visually impaired and blind. Geared to parents and educators, these videos offer critical insights and strategies to help a child achieve independence. All videos are approximately 12 minutes in length.
Children who are blind or visually impaired need to be able to use their other senses to gain information about the world. The sense of touch is one of the major senses that can make up for their loss of sight. However, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers who are visually impaired need encouragement and opportunities to build their tactual skills. This video discusses the importance of tactual learning, the progression of tactual skills from infancy through preschool needed for preparing children for braille reading, and how parents and teachers can help.
