A Program for Visually Impaired Children.
Naples, Victor J.; And Others
Disseminated by the Ohio State Department of Education, the booklet explains how to organize programs for the visually handicapped according to the vision center concept, and describes currently available state-sponsored services for the visually impaired. Suggested philosophy and goals of programs for the visually impaired are identified, along with the population to be served by such programs. Explained are the concept, the objectives, and suggested procedures (screening, parent groups, placement, integration, physical organization, mobility orientation, daily living skills, adaptive physical activities, educational resources, study skills, channels for learning, vocational development, and use of audio equipment and teacher aides) of vision centers, which are said to combine the outstanding features of self-contained classrooms, resource teacher plans, and itinerant teacher plans. State-sponsored services available to school districts to assist in providing appropriate educational opportunities to individuals are discussed: tutoring services, student reader services, transportation, Ohio's Resource Center for the Visually Handicapped, the federal Quota Program, and the educational and medical clinic. Appendixes include a listing of suggested special equipment for vision centers, a listing of sources of equipment and materials, a guide to agencies and organizations concerned with the visually handicapped, and state program standards and teacher certification requirements.
