XIMENA HUG, Mercedes  e  ARIAS, Claudia. Early Infant Development and Auditory Localization in Blind Children: A Review. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.1, pp.71-82. ISSN 1657-9267.

The scientific study of the ability to localize sounds in children with normal vision began in the early 80s. However, in the case of blind children, scarce research has been conducted on this subject. This paper presents a review of articles on cognitive and motor development of blind children that evaluated sound localization behaviors in early childhood. First, pioneering studies published in the 60s are summarized and then researches from the 80s are presented. Finally, the main findings of these papers are analyzed and integrated, their implications are discussed and some questions unresolved in this field of knowledge are stated.

Palavras-chave : auditory localization; child development; blindness; development psychology; review; cognition; motor control.
