Handbook for Teachers of the Visually Handicapped.
Napier, Grace D.; Weishahn, Mel W.
Designed to aid the inexperienced teacher of the visually handicapped, the handbook examines aspects of program objectives, content, philosophy, methods, eligibility, and placement procedures. The guide to material selection provides specific information on the acquisition of Braille materials, large type materials, recorded materials, direct reader service, and sources for educational aids. Suggestions for the regular classroom teacher of a blind student include the use of resource or itinerant teacher, methods to aid the blind child in his adjustment, and the maximum use of time and circumstances. Techniques in the area of orientation and mobility are included with illustrations, and common visual impairments (such as glaucoma, nystagmus, and retrolental fibroplasia) are described. Sample forms and a bibliography concerning education of the visually handicapped are included. (RD)
