Summary/Abstract: In the education of children with visual impairments there is insistence on the maximum use of the possibilities offered by contemporary didactic mediums. Didactic mediums and teaching aids allow and facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and of learning and literacy skills for these students. Regardless of the degree of a child’s visual impairment, today there is insistence on the maximum use of preserved visual abilities in the process of learning. For that purpose, over the last decade protocols for assessing the efficiency of use of the senses (visual and tactile) have been developed. Those protocols allow the educational team to create individual educational plans, making objective decisions on the selection of appropriate learning mediums for chil-dren with visual impairments. There are several groups of children with visual im-pairments for whom it is essential to determine the primary learning medium and a specific teaching approach. Usually, those children are the ones with low vision, who have the ability to use visual mediums, but who have received the prognosis of further decrease of visual acuity. In addition, this group includes children who are unable to reach satisfactory reading speed and multiple disabled visually impaired children
