de Klerk, Heidi; Greeff, Abraham P.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n7 p414-424 Jul 2011
This article reports on a study of the adaptation of parents with children with visual impairment in South Africa. The results showed that familial values (such as attitude toward the disability, religious faith, and familial closeness) permit a process of inclusion (through the use of resources and acceptance of help) and the development of a sense of accomplishment. (Contains 1 table.)
