Description of Practice Perspectives: Teaching Two Critical Locomotor Skills to Children Who Are Blind or Have Low Vision
Alexandria's story is not uncommon. The purpose of this report is to highlight the importance of the development of locomotor skills at a young age in children with visual impairments (that is, those who are blind or have low vision). The authors of this paper have many years of experience teaching, coaching, and conducting research related to locomotor skills and sports with children who are visually impaired. The strategies outlined in this report have been used in physical education classes, clinics, early childhood programs, and sports camps.
