Results of an auditory training for blind/visually impaired children and teenagers are presented. A measure of the training effectiveness is the difference between the results of a pre- and post-training verification test. Two age groups of visually handicapped young persons were tested: 7-12 years old and 14-19 years old. It was shown that the training may be beneficiary for blind or visually impaired children and teenagers, especially in tasks related to localization of moving sound sources. No differences in training results were found between age groups. The results of trained groups were compared to those obtained for not trained control groups of young blind individuals.
