Temperamental features in enfants suffering early visual deprivation
Remote consequences of early visual deficit (lack
of information on visual patterns) for
temperamental development were examined.
Temperamental characteristics by Balleyguier scale
were estimated in 24 enfants (6-36 months old)
during different periods after bilateral cataract
removal and correction of eyesight by lenses.
Comparison of these data with normative ones shows
two independent styles of behaviour in infants
with early visual deprivation. One of them is
characterized by negative emotional background and
avoidance strategy prevalence. The other is
connected to high innep strain and
self-stimulation, generalized discharging and
aggression prevalence. The extent of emperamental
features does not vary according to time since
deprivation period. The existence of critical
period in self-regulation systems development
during the first 6 months of life is stated.
