Proceedings of Training Institute for Rehabilitation Teachers of the Blind Teaching the Newly Blinded Homemaker (Lincoln, Nebraska, July 12-17, 1970).
Schwab, Lois O.
The proceedings are composed of nine papers that discuss different aspects of the rehabilitation teacher of the blind in his effort to teach the newly blinded homemaker. The introductory paper explains briefly the way in which different sources work together toward rehabilitating the blind homemaker. The following three papers then discuss, in turn, the future vocational opportunities for the blind, the relationship of the rehabilitation teacher and the home economist, and the rehabilitation teacher and future services to the blind. Then follow subject matter outlines for teaching food preparation, home management, meal planning, food buying and storage, textiles, clothing, and grooming. A copy of the institute program and schedule is included, with a short description of three films shown at the institute film theater. Then listed and clarified are 14 needs and rights of the newly blinded homemaker concerning topics such as emotional treatment, rehabilitation program, community resources, family role, help from sighted persons, individuality, personal needs, free time, security, and recognition for success. The final paper focuses on Illinois' experience with the extension home economist. Appended are seven papers related to the institute. (CB)
