Abstract: This article describes a qualitative study that explored 12 older adults' successful adjustment to vision loss. These older adults identified factors related to their successful adjustment and offered advice to others who are facing the challenges of visual impairment.

Abstract: This qualitative study of rocking in four children who are blind, aged 10-13, used in-depth interviews, observations, psychomotor assessments, and reviews of school and other records. The findings revealed similarities in the children's early medical histories, delays in motor development, constraints on vigorous movement, and limited peer relationships.

Abstract: This study compared improvements in the visual function of a group of 20 Spanish children with low vision, aged 4 to 6 years. The children were divided into four groups: Barraga and Morris program, Frostig program, placebo control, and untreated control. Since all the children showed significant improvements, regardless of the treatment or control procedure used, the authors concluded that the treatment programs were not effective, at least with the children they studied. The increases in visual efficiency and acuity probably reflected the normal effects of maturation, schooling, or both, in these children.
