The Principal Works with the Visually Impaired.
Scholl, Geraldine T.
Intended for principals of regular schools, the bulletin gives information for planning an appropriate educational experience for the visually handicapped child. Definition and identification of the visually handicapped child and the impact of a visual impairment on the child are discussed. Two types of educational programs, both residential and day schools are reviewed. Guidelines for selection, placement, and integration of the visually handicapped child into the regular classroom are suggested; children with additional disabilities are considered; and likely local, state, and national resources are mentioned. Chapters are followed by references or suggested supplementary readings. There are photographic illustrations, and two appendixes list organizations and give addresses for the directors of the regional Special Education Instructional Materials Centers. (LE)
