Description of The Unseen Minority: A Social History of Blindness in the United States: 18. The Three-Wheeled Cart

The movement for home teaching of blind and visually impaired persons began in the United States in the mid-19th century. Home teaching promoted finger reading, handicrafts, and strategies for daily living for decades before professionalization began to take hold with input from the field of social work starting in the 1920s. This chapter recounts the search for teacher education and practice standards and the post–World War II rise of the rehabilitation center concept.
