The Oregon Project for Preschool Children who are Blind or Visually Impaired (OR Project) is a comprehensive assessment and curriculum designed for use with children birth to six who are blind or visually impaired. It can  be used by parents, teachers, vision specialists or counselors in the home or in the classroom setting.

What’s Different About the Way Visually Impaired Children Learn? Parents whose child has a visual impairment may wonder what effect impaired vision will have on their child. There is no single answer that applies to all children. Your child’s specific visual condition, the presence of any other disabilities, their personality and temperament, plus many other factors, will all influence how they reacts to their particular visual impairment.

Early Learning Applications: Many applications are available to promote early learning for young children who are blind or visually impaired, including those who are deaf/blind or who have multiple disabilities. this resource is part 2 of a great list and you can access part 1 from here as well.
