Parenting a Visually Impaired Child: The Mother's Perspective.
Hancock, K.; And Others
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v84 n8 p411-13 Oct 1990
Semistructured interviews with six mothers of visually impaired children found three dominant themes emerging: (1) emotional issues (e.g., the time of diagnosis); (2) coping strategies (e.g., use of support networks); and (3) problems and concerns about relationships with professionals, the child's education, people's attitudes, and the amount of time involved in parenting.
