Description of Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) September-October 2013, Vol. 107., No. 5 (ePUB)
"In order for us to be effective practitioners, we need to be aware of changes in the population of individuals we serve," wrote Editor in Chief Dr. Diane Wormsley, in the editorial for the September-October issue of the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB). An article entitled "Severe Visual Impairments in Infants and Toddlers in the United States," written by Deborah Hatton, Sarah Ivy, and Charles Boyner, provides a current picture of the causes of severe visual impairment in infants and toddlers in the United States. Dr. Wormsley points out: "The fact that close to 65% of the children being born today with visual impairments have additional disabilities, as evidenced by the authors' findings, serves as a reminder that personnel who work with these students need to have the ability to collaborate with a variety of other professionals." The article is available for CEU credit, as well. Visit JVIB.org/allceus to view all of JVIB's CEU opportunities.
