Albinism: Improving Teacher and Caregiver Strategies for Meeting the Special Needs of Children with the Visual Disability of Ocular Albinism or Oculocutaneous Albinism (Birth to Age 14).
Ashley, Julia Robertson
This practicum report addresses the educational needs of students with the visual disability of ocular or oculocutaneous albinism. Two booklets were developed, published, and distributed--one for regular education teachers of children with albinism and one specifically about the very young child with albinism. The booklets discuss the special needs of these children and interventions and devices available to assist them. Evaluation of the booklet for teachers by 20 educators of the visually impaired was highly positive, as was evaluation of the preschool booklet by 5 preschool day care teachers. A survey completed by 107 parents also supported the validity and usefulness of the teacher booklet. Additionally, an international survey which received 41 responses indicated a need for the type of information presented in the booklets in other countries. Appendices include the checklists used for both educator and non-educator groups, a copy of each booklet, and various letters distributed during the course of the practicum. (Contains approximately 240 references.) (DB)
