Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the social behavior of visually impaired students. Most of the students covered by this study were passive and generally had difficulty in interacting with people. However, their indisciplined behavior in schools was found to be similar to that of sighted students. A few intervention strategies, proposed by educationists, are discussed here to help the visually impaired students in adapting themselves to their environment, and thereby secure peer and community acceptance. Such acceptance will eventually help the impaired students in overcoming the feeling of being rejected or neglected by classmates and society.
