Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This research project provides an annotated list of recommended readings for parents of visually impaired children. Selection for the list was determined by a) copyright date of 1980 or later, b) two or more recommendations from professionals working with VI children or organizations supporting the VI population, and c) availability from Iowa Commission for the Blind or Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School. Forty-seven responses were received from the 101 educational settings and organizations asked to recommend readings for parents of the visually impaired. Thirty-six titles compose the final annotated list. It is divided into six categories: autobiography, child development, coping, education for the child, education for the parent, and parent/child activities. Annotations range from 30-60 words.
