Deaf-Blindness

In the Community of a Classroom: Inclusive Education of a Student with Deaf-Blindness--print edition page(s) 197-210

Nancy Sall and Harvey H. Mar

Abstract: This case study describes the inclusive education program of a student with deaf-blindness on the basis of extensive classroom observations and interviews with parents, teachers, administrators, and peers. Critical factors associated with the program's success included direct administrative involvement, teachers' and peers' problem-solving skills, adaptation of materials and school activities, effective teaming, consideration of the physical environment, and adoption of attitudes that support inclusion.

Literacy

Reading Environment at Home and at School of Swedish Students with Visual Impairments--print edition page(s) 211-224

Kerstin Fellenius

Abstract: This study of the reading performance of 9-year-old sighted and visually impaired readers in Sweden revealed that the two groups of students were in a more equivalent environment in school than at home. The greatest differences between the two groups were found in their statements about their interactions with family members at home, particularly for readers with specific reading media, such as braille and closed-circuit televisions. In addition, readers with severe low vision had less knowledge about letters and words when they started school and were an at-risk group among young readers with visual impairments.

Multiple Disabilities

Use of Activity Boxes with Young Children Who Are Blind, Deaf-Blind, or Have Severe Learning Disabilities and Visual Impairments--print edition page(s) 225-232

Jenefer Dunnett

Abstract: This article describes the use of activity boxes with young children in the United Kingdom who are blind, deaf-blind, or have severe learning disabilities and visual impairments. It then discusses the contribution such boxes make to the intellectual development of these children, particularly the development of voluntary hand function from the integration of the primitive grasp-and-release instincts shown by infants.
