    Abstract

    This study investigates parents' perceptions of their children's social skills and social behaviour. The focus is on young people with severe vision impairment. Children require well developed social skills in order to build relationships, develop positive self-esteem, and gain acceptance into society (Wolffe, Sacks & Thomas, 2000). Social skills are learned through "visual observation, imitation and experiential learning" (Sacks & Silberman, 2000, p. 616).
