This chapter presents the factors that typically influence the development of self-esteem are described, as well as the threats to the development of a healthy self-esteem in children with visual impairments and ideas for encouraging a positive sense of self. The authors point out that self-esteem evolves from infancy through adolescence and into early adulthood, shaped by life experiences and in response to situational demands. The text includes specific examples of how children who are visually impaired can develop positive self-concepts when they are provided with love and acceptance, opportunities to explore, high expectations, and meaningful shared experiences with others, including both visually impaired and sighted peers.
