A Counseling Bureau Resource Center for Visually Handicapped Students.
Swanson, Donald A.
Current literature reveals little with regard to the delivery of programs and services to the visually handicapped by university and college counseling centers. Philosophically and logistically counseling centers are in the position to not only sensitize the academic community to the needs of the visually handicapped, but also to support the personal, social, and educational development of each visually handicapped student on campus. This paper describes the development of the relationship between the Counseling Bureau of the University of South Carolina and the South Carolina Commission for the Blind. This relationship has resulted in cooperative precollege summer programming for visually handicapped students, ongoing support systems responding to the specific needs of a visually handicapped university population during the academic year as well as during the summer, and the development of a resource center which programmatically and technically facilitates the social, personal, and educational development of visually handicapped students on campus.
