Little room

​It is important to offer students with a visual impairment surroundings that can motivate them to reach for objects as early as possible. The Little Room is designed to give the child the opportunity to learn about space and to reach for objects.

Within the Little Room these children can experience themselves as active people who decide for themselves when and with what they wish to be active.

Various activities performed within the Little room promote the development of:

  • spatial awareness
  • sensory integration
  • early object concept
  • knowledge about the position of objects
  • an understanding of oneself as the person who produces the emerging sounds.
