RESEARCH IN BLINDNESS AND SEVERE VISUAL IMPAIRMENT, PROCEEDINGS OF THE SYMPOSIUM (NEW YORK, OCTOBER 19, 1963).
NEWELL, FRANK W.; AND OTHERS
ON OCTOBER 19, 1963, SPECIALISTS REPORTED THE FINDINGS OF STUDIES THEN UNDERWAY AND OUTLINED THE RESEARCH POSSIBILITIES WITHIN THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENCIES. QUESTIONS WERE RAISED ABOUT THE DEFINITION OF BLINDNESS FOR RESEARCH AND SERVICE PURPOSES. SPEAKERS DISCUSSED THE POSSIBLE USE OF SUCH DATA SOURCES AS STATEWIDE REGISTERS OF THE BLIND, THE INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH INFORMATION SERVICE ESTABLISHED BY THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR THE BLIND IN 1960, AND THE REHABILITATION CODES PROJECT BEGUN IN 1956 THROUGH FUNDS FROM THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE AID OF CRIPPLED CHILDREN. TWO RESEARCH PROJECTS, THE NATIONAL HEALTH SURVEY SPECIAL STUDY OF VISUAL IMPAIRMENT 1963-1964 AND THE WAR-BLINDED VETERANS RESEARCH PROJECT, WERE DISCUSSED WHILE THE FINDINGS AND PROCEDURES OF A 1963 PILOT STUDY OF VISUAL IMPAIRMENT IN CLEVELAND WERE CONSIDERED IN DETAIL. THE RESEARCH IMPLICATIONS OF SEVERAL RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES WERE ALSO EXPLORED. (DF)
