Open Access Graduate Research Paper
"Since 1900, when the first public school class was organized in Chicago, special classes for blind children have been established in most larger and intermediate-sized communities as well. At the onset, all of the instruction for the blind was conducted in special classes. Gradually, however, blind children in these classes were reassigned for part of the day to regular classes." Today, this trend has turned into a movement to fully integrate blind children into the regular classroom. Within regular classrooms, teachers recognize the existence of individual differences; therefore, instructional methods and assignments are tailored to meet the divergent needs in the classroom such that each child might benefit from the instruction.
