Providing a Continuum of Service for Black Visually Handicapped Students.
Stewart, Viola D.
The goal of the itinerant vision consultant is to enhance the education of Black visually handicapped students in a normal school environment by using special techniques, devices, and equipment--with the aim of helping students to live and work in a community with sighted people. To be considered for admission to special classes or for itinerant services in the Philadelphia schools, each visually handicapped student's record must be reviewed by a special committee (including the classroom teacher, counselor, itinerant teacher, opthalmologist, and psychologist) with input from the parent. Meetings are planned so that parents become involved in the decision making process. (SB)
