Learning Objectives:

Discern the observable difference between achievement and non-achievement of Year One (12-24 months) essential motor milestone performance measures.
Define the age at which each of the four methods of achieving balance for independent walking develop and how they correlate to current delayed motor milestones described in numerous research reports of learners born blind or mobility visually impaired.
Conclude that effective mobility tools are essential to achieving independent walking with safety in toddlers born blind or mobility visually impaired.
