In nowadays the social inclusion process of people with disability is a recurrent topic in political and social speeches. Scholars and Investigators from the field of human and social sciences have also shown a profound interest in this subject. Several studies have showed us the importance of considering the particularities of different environments and different disabilities. For better working with blind people its is of the outmost interest to know the special features of blindness such as personal control over physical, social and economical environments. On the other hand, blindness seems to increase vulnerability to anxiety, sicial adaptation problems and depression. When these difficulties prevail they seem to enhance the degree of dependence and isolation. There for, during the rehabilitation process, an increased attention to the psychological and functional domains is due.

Keywords : Blindness; insertion process; rehabilitation process; psychological domain; functional domain.
