Career Planning Modifications for the Visually Impaired Learner.
Sanspree, Mary Jean; McGrath, Glenn
Modifications of educational programs can enable visually impaired learners to benefit from career planning from elementary through secondary grades. Exploration and mobility issues are critical, and the student must acquire personal awareness in respect to the environment before basic work tasks can be performed. Classroom adaptations that require the visually impaired child to develop independence in traveling are important parts of the curriculum. Many modifications require only portable and useable equipment within the classroom. Appropriate teacher training is another vital concern in the successful career development of visually impaired learners. (CL)
