Description of Impact of Early Experiences on the Development of Young Children with Visual Impairments: Revisited



Abstract: This study examined the influence of several variables (maternal behaviors, home environment, and family's socioeconomic status) on the development of young visually impaired children. Specifically, 15 mother-child dyads were observed in their homes during daily routines at two points in time: when the children were aged 20–36 months and about one year later. Overall, the study found that maternal behaviors had more of an impact on the children's development at Time 1 than did the other variables, but at Time 2, the home environment appeared to have a greater influence.
