Review A Parents' Guide to Special Education for Children with Visual Impairments

Editorial Review:

Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness - Reviewed by Missy Garber
Although explicitly intended as a guide for parents, this wonderful resource would be helpful to teachers, paraeducators, administrators, and anyone else involved in planning the education of a student with a visual impairment. My suggestion to parents is that after they have carefully read A Parent's Guide, to let it go only to share the information learned from it with the next puzzle-piece holder who plays a role in planning and implementing your child's education.
