Model for a Workshop on Assessment of Blind and Visually Impaired Students.
Jastrzembska, Zofja S.
The document reports on a series of 18 regional workshops for school psychologists on assessment of visually handicapped students. Workshop topics are summarized, and materials indexed in an appendix are cross referenced for each topic: background information (social attitudes regarding vision loss, developmental implications); assessment (use of standardized measures, use of assessment results); counseling; vocational guidance; and use of outside resources. Workshop materials, such as the participant's kit, which includes case material for small group work and reprints of articles and chapters on visual impairment, are described. The literature exhibit and videotapes used in the workshops are similarly described. The report includes a paper by J. Morse, "Simulation of Visual Conditions," and a summary of D. Alford's dissertation on "Knowledge Needed and Possessed by School Psychologists in the Psychoeducational Assessment of Visually Impaired Children as Perceived by School Psychologists and Teachers of Visually Impaired Children." Among appendixes is a sample agenda for one of the workshops. (CL)
