Review Teaching Orientation and Mobility in the Schools

Other Titles by Natalie Knott

Editorial Review:

D.V.I. Quarterly-Council for Exceptional Children
Ms. Knott's book is a wonderful addition to the O&M field. It is a compendium of information from Ms. Knott's more than twenty-five years of experience. Ms. Knott's intention is to help those who are starting out in the field of O&M, as well as those who have been in the field of O&M, but may have little or no experience with children. Moreover, this book is easy to read and a good addition to the libraries of professionals in the field of visual impairment because it helps one learn about the uniqueness of schools and school situations, as well as how O&M fits into the educational model.
