Description of The Play Behavior and Play Materials of Blind and Sighted Infants and Preschoolers



Abstract: Parents' answers to a survey of their children's play behavior revealed numerous differences between the play behavior of children who are blind and children who are sighted. The main findings were that the sighted children engaged in more complex levels of play at an earlier age than did the blind children, the blind children interacted less frequently with other children than did the sighted children, the blind children preferred tactile-auditory games and toys and rarely engaged in symbolic games.
