When an infant has severe visual impairment, visual input may be so limited that the infant/child does not become aware of it. To help the infant to learn to see, stimulation must be strong, well structured and simple. During stimulation we must carefully watch for signs of overstimulation, increase in heart rate, breathing frequency and change in muscle tonus.
