Description of Literacy Skills - Volume 2, Chapter 8 Foundations of Education

This chapter begins by discussing the important role of teachers of students with visual impairments in ensuring the growth of literacy skills for their students. It describes the informal assessment approaches to measure this growth and presents detailed information on strategies for teaching literacy skills to those students. The information is based on a broad definition of literacy that encompasses three major facets: emergent literacy skills, academic literacy skills, and functional literacy skills. The concluding section describes the integration of visually impaired students in literacy programs within general education classrooms.
