Influence of a Parent Resource Manual on Physical Activity Levels of Children with Visual Impairments
Robinson, Barbara L.; Lieberman, Lauren J.
RE:view: Rehabilitation Education for Blindness and Visual Impairment, v39 n3 p129-140 Fall 2007
The authors examined the effects of a parent resource manual on physical and sedentary activity levels of children with visual impairments. Children and youth with visual impairments, aged 9-23 years (7 girls, 11 boys), attended a 1-week summer sports camp in New York state. The authors found that 1 month after they provided the families of the campers with a parent resource manual, the boys significantly increased the time that they spent participating in physical activity (p = 0.032). Parents provided the present authors with information regarding the usefulness of the resource manual and what they liked or disliked about it and suggested items that could be added. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
