Description of Psychosocial Needs of Children and Youths - Volume 1, Chapter 6 Foundations of Education

Many factors affect the ability of students who are visually impaired to interact with and gain knowledge of their environment. The quality of their self-concept is influenced by life experiences, which, in turn, determine how those experiences are perceived. This chapter explores various aspects of growing up with a visual impairment, including refining one’s self-concept; responding to crises; dealing with the dependence-independence continuum; nurturing and maintaining a healthy self-concept; achieving self-acceptance; becoming socially connected with others; making informed choices; demonstrating personal and social competencies; and learning the pleasures of relaxing and having fun.
