Review When You Have a Visually Impaired Student in Your Classroom

Editorial Review:

Midwest Book Review-Library Bookwatch
The contributors cogently address how to effectively work with a visually impaired student, how such students can work in a classroom, special devices that can be used to facilitate learning for visually impaired students, and much, much more. With the emphasis on mainstreaming visually impaired children whenever possible, When You Have a Visually Impaired Student in Your Classroom is very highly recommended as being an excellent, up-to-date primer and resource.
