When adding CVI training — be specific. The book will be of great practical value to those who care for children with visual impairment due to brain injury. The book Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure discusses several ways in which you can nurture children's strength and confidence to help them build resilience: 1.

One creative mom dyed all the white foods different colors to help her son see them. If your child is easily overstimulated, consider reducing the sound when he is eating.

Guide his hand to his cup and help him bring it to his mouth rather than suddenly touching the cup to his lips without warning. Students with visual impairments may see things differently from one another, even when they share the same eye condition. Because children are naturally curious, use of universal design in creating leaning environments is beneficial. As an early childhood educator, it is easy to want to do things for a child who has a visual impairment, especially if a teacher notes that the child has a slower pace than peers who do not have a vision loss.
