Recreation for Blind Adults. Organized Programs in Specialized Settings.
The effects of blindness in adults, activity programs, and the administrative technicalities of these programs are discussed. A definition of blindness, historical background, and mention of social group work serve as introduction to the impact of blindness. Under these activities are included the following subjects: arts and crafts, study and participation in dance and drama, group activities and social events, literary and language activities (braille, lectures, reading groups, music appreciation and contribution), nature outings, sporting events, and miscellaneous features. The qualifications of paid and volunteer staff are considered as is their training. The chain of administration, programing, financing, and physical facilities, including operational problems, are included in addition to the practical problems of recruiting, transporting, and charging patients for the services.
