With the new requirements of P.L. 99-457, a closer look will have to be taken at the contributions of the primary environment (the home) of visually impaired children, especially if interventions with preschool children and their parents are to be effective and meaningful. This article reviews the current and past literature on growth and development, home environmental measures, and their interrelationships with children who are visually impaired. Although the use of environmental measures still is in its infancy, especially with children who are visually impaired, some useful measures are available to aid parents and educators in determining the form that early intervention strategies should take.
