From the introduction...
Children with visual impairments often have more difficulty learning to feed themselves than do children with adequate vision. Babies and toddlers with visual impairments lack one major avenue of exploration, and this significantly influences their awareness, perceptions, and anticipation of the food which is presented to them. As a result, they often resist the introduction of textured foods, show a lack of interest in the process of self-feeding, and may be perceived as “poor eaters.”
We hope this booklet will be helpful to those families who are coping with the challenge of teaching competent feeding skills to their children with visual impairments.
