The article substantiates the significance of value orientations of an individual with special educational needs in the aspect of prevention of deviant behavior. It is emphasized that there are practically no studies on the specifics of the value orientations of blind children as a factor determining their behavior. This article presents the results of the theoretical substantiation and survey, focused on the prevention of deviant behavior, (the author's method of L. P. Girfanova, aimed at identifying the attitude of children to universal values) of 10-11th grade students of the Ufa Correctional Boarding School No. 28 for blind and visually impaired students. It is shown that it is necessary to introduce such an element of prevention as value orientations of individuals that underlie their motivation of behavior. The value characteristics of the individual acquire special relevance in the conditions of increasing threats to life and health that have developed in the modern world due to the fact that there is a natural connection between the stability of the individuals’ value orientations and the economic, socio-political and spiritual life of society. The practical significance of the research lies in understanding of the key role of the axiological approach in public prevention and social education of this category of children, providing them with “a worthy social position” in the system of public relations, as well as understanding of the essence of prevention as the formation of the value orientations stability and normative behavior of the individual.
