Information about developments in the field of education of visually handicapped children and about resources available to assist educators in their efforts to initiate, extend, and improve educational programs for these children appears in a wide variety of pamphlets and professional journals. An attempt is made in this bulletin to summarize recent developments so that this information may be more readily accessible to those involved in planning and administering programs for children who are handicapped in school because of visual loss or impairment. The document contents include: (1) Introduction; (2) The Child at Home--parent counseling programs, levels of expectation, enriching and supplementing school experiences, and the older child; (3) The Child at School--vision screening, identifying the visually handicapped child, what the school should know about each child, trial placement, and some basic instructional needs; (4) Developing the School Program--the role of State departments of education, organizational plans, qualifications of the special teacher, and factors affecting program planning; and (5) Some National Sources of Information and Educational Aids--special books and aids, distribution of educational aids, and low-vision optical aids. Each chapter concludes with a list of suggested readings. Appended are lists of professional literature sources, a sample eye examination report, and acknowledgments. (Contains 4 charts.)
