Description of Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) March-April 2015 Vol. 109., No. 2
The March-April 2015 issue serves to fulfill JVIB's purpose as a "forum for the exchange of ideas, airing of controversies, and discussion of issues" with a pair of Letters to the Editor and a Comment. A letter written by Grace Ambrose-Zaken about an article she read in the January-February 2015 issue is followed by a response letter by Orly Lahav, the lead author of the article in question. In a Comment, M. Cay Holbrook issues a call to action to the field of visual impairment and blindness about the need for and importance of current research in many areas. She writes, "It is important for those of us who have chosen to commit ourselves to the education of children who are visually impaired to examine the reasons behind the lack of current literature and devise solutions to address this problem." A classic article from 2005 with solid methodology on cortical or cerebral visual impairment is the subject of Tessa McCarthy's This Mattered to Me; and a Statistical Sidebar on sampling, written by Rob Wall Emerson, rounds out the News and Features section of the issue.
