This study aims to improve the knowledge and practice regarding care of visually disabled children by teaching the caretaker empowerment module (CEM) among mothers of visually disabled children. Aims and objective: To assess the level of knowledge and practice of CEM regarding care of visually disabled children among mothers of visually disabled children, to evaluate the effectiveness of CEM on knowledge and practice regarding care of visually disabled children, and to associate the selected demographic variables with knowledge and practice of CEM. Materials and methods: Quantitative research approach was used for this study. Sixty samples (30 in control group and 30 in experimental group) were selected using a purposive sampling technique with nonrandomization.
