Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

help needed urgently

I am a major in early child developement and family studies, and my education has brought many questions to mind. I am looking for current resources on understanding how totally blind children learn to do things from sitting up to crawling and walking. I have been totally blind since birth, but it is difficult for me to ask my parents exactly how I learned these things, so I would appreciate any professional literature you have found helpful. Thank you.
