Children develop faster during their first five years than at any other stage in their life. And while children who are not visually impaired learn to move around, communicate, and understand the world "naturally" as they interact with people and things they see, children who are blind need extra help learning how to rely on their other senses - hearing, touch, smell, and taste - to explore, learn and interact with the world around them.
