The ability of children to interact with peers and adults according to generally accepted social norms and rules of behavior in society allows them to adapt to new social conditions. Children with visual impairments are characterized by certain features associated with the sensory sphere, which limit their opportunities for getting information from the outside world, lead to changes in the methods and means of communication, and cause difficulties for social adaptation and gaining social experience. The ability of children to predict future events may serve as an indicator of how well they orient themselves in social reality. The purpose of the study was to identify the correlation between the forecasting capability of children and indicators of socialization of preschoolers with visual impairments. The study involved 249 children aged 5-7 years who attend preschool educational institutions – 210 children with no visual impairment and 30 children with visual impairment. The results of the current study suggests that children with visual impairments have difficulties with social adaptation, gaining social experience and learning the rules in a normative situation. The limited opportunities for obtaining information from the outside world make it difficult for them to develop means of communication with adults and peers. Children with visual impairments find it harder to master the skills of caring for their things, not always do they follow safety rules in interaction with strangers and in their behavior, and their interaction with adults is often restricted. Children with visual impairments are less successful in free communication with adults and peers; they are less likely to comply with safety rules and systematic requirements and observe daily rules in compare to children with no developmental disorders. The study suggests the need for introduction of special activities aimed at developing the ability to anticipate future events and developing successful social behavior in children with visual impairments.
