Description of Personnel Preparation Programs in Visual Impairments: A Status Report



Abstract: This article is the third in a series of studies of personnel preparation programs and their faculties. It reports on issues that were included in the first two studies, such as the availability of programs, type of faculty, and salaries, and also addresses issues that were added to reflect changes in the field of visual impairment, such as program delivery models. Responses from 39 programs in the United States that prepare personnel to work with children and adults with visual impairments showed that a variety of nontraditional models are available for delivering preservice education and that there is a decline in the percentages of tenure-track faculty since the first two studies, which were published in 1989 and 1996.
