Field of study: Special Education
The prurpose of this paper is to establish specifics of preparation for school of children with blindness, and designing a correctional complex program - experimentally based on psychopedagogical models for preparing children with blindness for school.
Research Objectives: determination of appliance categories, theoretical foundations of empirical investigation, to clarify the issue of school readiness of children with blindness, the content and structural components of the preparation for school activities for children with blindness, design of investigating the level of readiness of preschool blind children to study in school, experimental research on school readiness of blind children, theoretical foundation, development and implementation of psycho-pedagogical models for the efficiency of preparation of children with blindness for school, developing recommendations on preparing children with blindness for school.

Scientific value of the addressed problem: lies in the completion of certain theoretical views about the socializations of preschool child with severe sensory impairments; were discovered and formulated new scientific characteristics with reference to the essence of the training school for children with blindness; was proposed the definition about the preparation of children with blindness for school in terms of the severity of the impairment; were developed psychopedagogical models for preparing preschool children with blindness for school.
The practical value of research: The study completes special pedagogy with new information about increasing the school readiness of children with blindness. Development program elaborated, experimentally verified, scientifically reasoned in order to increase the level of education of blind children and those with severe disorders of view can be used in the practical work of pedagogue of institutions and by parents who educate children with blindness. Proposed psychopedagogical models may underlie the organization and optimize the process of preparing blindpreschoolers for learning activity, taking into account individual characteristics and type of organization.
Value of the researchThe present study brings key information to national research in the field tiflo-pedagogy (meanings related with educational practices) which can be used in the initial and continuous training pof psychopedagogues, educators, parents and other actors concerned about the development of preschool blind child, also the results can be included in various trainings, courses and other educational resources.
