This developmental study aims to produce an instructional design facilitating orientation and mobility-based social learning for visually impaired students. In particular, this development aims to produce a prototype design, to test the accuracy of instructional design, and to test the feasibility of instructional design for a visually impaired learning. There are three important aspects in developing the learning design: assessment, Matrix planning, and individualized educational Program (IEP). In connection with the accuracy, there was an increase of students’ learning outcomes before and after the instructional learning developed within this  study was applied, ranging from 59.99% - 79.99%, showing an increase of 20%. Regarding to the feasibility, it is concluded that the learning design is effectively used for blind children and can be used as guidelines for teachers in learning process.
