Practice Perspective — JVIB Abstract

Abstract: As much as the field of visual impairment has advanced over the last half century and as growing populations of children and adults continue to be served by its practitioners, the issue of personnel shortages to meet the diverse needs of students and consumers seems to continue. More vision professionals are being trained than ever, but it seems that there is still a challenge in meeting the needs of all the individuals who are eligible for services. One of the reports in this issue's practice section brings up a dilemma about populations with different types of visual impairment who are not traditionally thought of as individuals who would benefit from the services of education and rehabilitation professionals in the field of visual impairment. The question arises as to whether “blindness services” should be expanded to populations of children and adults who have traditionally not been served.
