White, K. D.; Saravanabhavan, R. C.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v89 n2 p170,172 Mar-Apr 1995
This paper describes a summer program teaching independent living skills to 20 adults with visual impairments. Results suggest the program had a lasting and profound impact on clients' previously low knowledge of job hunting, decision making, stress management, and self-care skills. Interaction with other adults with visual impairments and client-driven curriculum were strengths of the program. (PB)
