Teaching Visually Impaired Children (3rd ed.)

Virginia Bishop,

Teaching Visually Impaired Children
 
 
In this exceptional new third edition, the author has retained much of the practical “how to” approach of the previous editions, but adds depth in two dimensions: learning theory and the educational process. This book is “so comprehensive in scope and complete in detail that it would be the most likely one I could recommend” (from the foreword by Dr. Natalie C. Barraga). There is a new chapter on the prenatal and early postnatal development of the visual system, and another entire chapter on gifted children who are also visually impaired—information not usually available in other textbooks. One of the most outstanding new sections is a discussion of brain function and its relationships to early development, learning, and visual function. The reader will find practical hints, philosophical rationale explained in simple terms and clear descriptions of the assessment process for students with visual impairments. The relationships between assessments, placements, and programming are described in detail, and provide rationale for best educational practice for visually impaired learners. University faculty, special teachers (TVI’s), regular classroom teachers, and families will all find something useful in this new edition. It continues to be a valuable reference for anyone dedicated to helping students with visual impairments achieve independence and realize their full potential. The appendices contain a set of listening games, touch typing lessons, a list of indicators for evaluating gifted programs, lists of assessment instruments and resources, and an updated timeline of major events in the history of education for visually impaired students. A glossary of terms completes the book. This book will not sit on your bookshelf—it will be read and used!
