RODRIGUES, Maria Rita Campello  and  MORAES, Marcia Oliveira. On imitation among young and blind children. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.1, pp. 20-37. ISSN 2236-6407.

This article investigates the imitation among young and blind children. The survey was conducted as a mosaic in the time since the field considerations were taken from two areas: a professional experience with early stimulation of blind babies and a workshop with blind and low vision young between 13-18 years. By stating the situated trace of knowledge, the research indicates that imitation among blind young people can be one of the ways of creating a common world among young blind and sighted people. Imitation among blind young is a multi-sensory process that requires a body experience, including both blind and people who see. The paper concludes with an indication of the unique character of imitation and at the same time, with the affirmation of its relevance to the development and inclusion process of both the child and the young blind.

Keywords : special education; imitation; blindness; body.
