SOUZA, Telma de Araujo; SOUZA, Vivian Estevam de; LOPES, Marcia Caires Bestilleiro  e  KITADAI, Silvia Prado Smit. Description of the neuropsychomotor and visual development of visually impaired children. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2010, vol.73, n.6, pp.526-530. ISSN 0004-2749.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0004-27492010000600012.

Purpose: To assess the neuropsychomotor and visual development of visually impaired children. Methods: Fourty-five children of both genders were evaluated in a 6-months period. The children were distributed into two study groups: experimental and control. The neuropsychomotor development and visual efficiency were evaluated in the two groups. Results: In the control group, 86.66% of the sample was inappropriate on the coordination behavior, however, all aspects were considered inadequate. The differences among the groups were significant, since p values<0.05 were evidenced in the visual efficiency behavior as well as in the neuropsychomotor development. Conclusion: It was observed in the studied sample that the visually impaired were characterized by a global delay in the neuropsychomotor development, mostly in the coordination behavior.
