Blind children and the word "see"

http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/how-blind-children-learn-verb-quotseequot-15896.html
When a sighted 3-year-old is asked to "look up," he will tilt their heads upwards, even if they are blindfolded. A blind 3-year-old raises her hands instead.

If told "You can touch that table, but don't look at it," the blind 3-year-old will lightly touch the table. If you later tell her she cal look at the table, she may explore all the surfaces of the table with her hands.
