Description of JVIB July - August 2018, Vol. 112, No. 4
This issue features an investigation into the effect on reading speed of digital text read on an iPad compared with that of traditional paper text prepared in large print for middle- and high-school students. Next, a study provides evidence regarding the correlation of optic nerve hypoplasia and maternal age, which is followed by a pilot study about a self-defense program designed for people with visual impairments. Average weekly physical activity and health is the focus of another article, which compares students with visual impairments and those who have autism spectrum disorder in addition to visual impairments. Other articles and reports focus on drawing, the effect of font style on reading in people with age-related macular degeneration, the post-high school experiences of students with deafblindness, fall risk assessments, using assistive technology to read foreign language books, and a hands-on activity to teach students about their own eyes. The issue concludes with a commentary on the U.S. rollout of Unified English Braille and a Statistical Sidebar.
In addition to research, practice, and features, this issue of JVIB also includes a CE opportunity for individuals needing to recertify with the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation & Education Professionals (ACVREP).
