Even though it’s believed that the blind see nothing but darkness, only about three percent of the blind report seeing nothing. Being able to see movement and light is what 97 percent of the blind report seeing. Even though they are able to see light and movement, they are not able to see color.
More than four children die a day from child abuse and neglect; over 70% of these children are under the age of three. Abuse that is visible on the body creates easy detection, but sometimes there are forms that cannot be visually observed. Fortunately, it is possible to detect when someone needs help.

The method of selecting the sample was not clearly presented in the study. The study must have specific demographic profile of the subjects. They include preterm babies that can have high probability of having neonatal sepsis due to their weak immune system. Only term babies must be included in the
This would raise the question whether or not other dental areas would yield such results. One study I found expanded on this question. It was found that when using a colorimeter, it benefited novice dental professionals more than it benefited experienced dentists (Klemetti et al., 2006).

Many teachers seem to understand obvious disabilities such as blindness, hard of hearing and other physical disabilities, and appear almost sympathetic toward those children. They seem, however, to have a preconception about children with ADHD or just hyperactivity, believing them to be lazy or deliberately troublemaking with normal classes having many barriers to learning, such as having a large pupil-teacher ratio and poor teacher resources, children with Special Needs are often medicated in order for teachers to cope with the demands of teaching.

People with hearing or sight loss can feel excluded from society as an individual, they may not be able to gain employment as the employer may not have the facilities to support the individual. Other people may not recognize the individual as having a disability as you may not be able to see the disability especially if they are deaf. This will lead an individual being treated with less understanding. Often caused by people being ignorant of someone with a sensory loss. This will prevent the individual from being included in society will lead to depression, low self esteem and self worth.
Poverty and deprivation - children from poor families and deprived areas are known to perform less and statistics have proven this, this is due to many factors from lack of food which leads to lack of concentration or a parent being unable to meet their educational needs, i.e. unable to afford school trips, basic school equipment or uniform. A deprived child can then feel isolated and have low self-esteem. Family environment and background – a child can be affected due to different circumstances within the home. This can anything from bereavement, parents separating or job loss.
Partial blindness is one of the conditions that occurs in the eyes. In 2010, the number of optically impaired people was estimated to be two hundred and eighty-four million in the world, of whom thirty-nine million were sightless (1). Most of the people with partial blindness are successful people because most of people with partial blindness never give up ,and they see their lives differently . Night blindness and color blindness make people see their lives differently, each one of them has it is own definition and between them there are three main similarities and two main differences.
