Review Itinerant Teaching

Other Titles by Jean Olmstead

Editorial Review:

Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness-Julie Prause
The wait for the much-anticipated follow-up to Jean E. Olmstead's groundbreaking book, Itinerant Teaching, is over. Itinerant Teaching (second edition), is an updated and straightforward source of information that deals specifically with the demands of being an itinerant teacher of students with visual impairments. It is important to note that there is no other publication like this available. The up-to-date edition, which almost tripled in page length from the first, could not have arrived soon enough for those of us in the blindness field who rely on this important publication. Itinerant Teaching should be regarded as the main source of help for those working in itinerant service delivery.
