I have a blind son, I have found that teaching him skill on how to live in his on home, like making up his bed and things that he would need to know if he had to go into a group home.And connect thing like this is the the foot of your bed.

Mehak,

Giving a child the confidence to live as visually impaired/blind is all that mattes at the end of the day. It is really important to have the parents on the same page as the teachers in giving hte child the needed confidence because if they are nto then it is an uphill battle for the child. A child can do anything if they set their mind to it they just need to be supported and loved. Those are the fundementals.

nahzee, that's not what i mean. i mean, that the children should be comfortable enough in doing the respective things. i be with them and thats why i know that everything is not that easy and normal for them. it's a bit tough. that's why i need suggestion so that they get tolearn new things without any problem. hope you understand what i mean. its not a trait. its a defect, unfortunately. try and understand.

This makes me kind of sad. Of course a blind person can tell where other people are, and where they are relative to the rest of the world. That is, of course, one of the basic ideas of being competent without sight.

The problem I have with this is that you ask what can be taught to blind children- you should be asking, what can not? It's very hard to give you suggestions on what can be taught, because that's asking "what can I teach people with blue eyes?" or "what can I teach people with brown hair?" You're specifying one trait that shows us none of their interests or talents and expecting that to be enough.

do you think it will be easier for them to do so? it is quite difficult for them, since they dont know where they or the other person is standing. please share if you have any other idea. i'll surely think about this. it might work. thanks a lot for the suggestion.

Why not teach them something dramatic? A short skit for them to perform. That might give the kids something fun and challenging to do.
