Your answers are all right -- except I question # 4. Does a child with a vision problem press his eyes with his fingers to indicate discomfort or pain in his eyes? You may be right that it's an indication of a need for attention, but please check your sources to be certain that is the best answer. Also, check back here because another teacher may have more experience with people with visual problems.

In checking your answers, I found this web site that has excellent information about people-first language.

Another thought about # 4. Is it an example of blindism? According to this site, rubbing eyes is a behavior of many people who are visually impaired and may be considered an example of blindism. Again -- please check your text.
