Description of JVIB July-August 2016 Vol. 110, No. 4
With an unprecedented three articles on deafblindness, this issue of JVIB is sure to be important for researchers and practitioners who work in that discipline. The lead article by Wittich and colleagues provides an overview of rehabilitation and research priorities with the specific intention to not only take into account the needs of researchers and consumers but also the priorities of service or care providers and administrators who work in deafblind rehabilitation ""at the grassroots level."" Two additional articles on the topic of deafblindness from Sweden surveyed the country's population of individuals with deafblindness on work and health and physical and mental health and social trust.
Individuals needing information on using the iPad in the classroom with students who are visually impaired will be interested in the book review of Larry Lewis, Jr.'s, iOS in the Classroom: A Guide for Teaching Students with Visual Impairments. Reviewer Stacy Kelly writes, ""Vision professionals who are providing instruction in the use of any iOS device will find information within this publication for an extensive number of tasks, relevant instructional strategies, and important resources."" This book review is available without a subscription, so readers should feel free to share it with their colleagues.
In addition to research, practice, and commentary, this issue of JVIB also includes two CE opportunities for individuals needing to recertify with the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation & Education Professionals (ACVREP).
