Multiculturalism and Students with Visual Impairments in New South Wales, Australia
Gallimore, Desiree P. M.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v99 n6 p345-354 Jun 2005
This study found that a large number of students with visual impairments in public and private schools in New South Wales come from culturally diverse backgrounds, that teacher training does not incorporate multicultural perspectives, and that instructors and itinerant vision teachers lack knowledge and skills to teach from a multicultural perspective. Recommendations are provided to guide the inclusion of multicultural perspectives in teacher preparation programs and teachers' practices.
