“Visually impaired child” or “Child with visual impairment” – which is the better way to describe a child who is blind or partially sighted?

Becoming a parent brings with it a lot of happiness, hope and learning.
In case the child has some kind of visual impairment, what would you do? Will this increase anxiety, perhaps decrease your expectations from your child? A child is a child first. Teach your child to take responsibilities, provide him opportunities and help him excel. Every blind child is a potential resource and it is important to invest in them

This page shares a wide range of resources that would help parents of blind children not only appreciate and understand the potential of their blind child but also gain valuable insights and direction in parenting.
