Alexander Shaw; Deborah Gold and Karen Wolffe, print edition pp 7-21
Abstract: This article describes the results in the employment domain of a larger study of the lifestyles of 328 Canadian youths, aged 15-21 and 22-30, 131 of whom were blind and 197 of whom had low vision. The youths completed a survey on their work-related experiences, including their current employment status and job-search strategies.

Braille: Technology and Early Braille Literacy: Using the Mountbatten Pro Brailler in Primary-grade Classrooms
Holly L. Cooper and Sharon K. Nichols, print edition pp 22-31
Abstract: This article describes the Early Braille Readers Project, which provided a Mountbatten Pro Brailler and peripheral equipment to 20 kindergarteners, first-, and second graders in Texas. The project included training and support in the form of site visits and teacher training for both teachers of students with visual impairments and classroom teachers, group workshops, and an electronic discussion group.

Early Intervention: A Proposed Tactile Vision-substitution System for Infants Who Are Blind Tested on Sighted Infants
Hervé Segond; Déborah Weiss and Eliana Sampaio, print edition pp 32-43
Abstract: This article analyzes the attraction of stimulation produced by a visuotactile sensory substitution device, which was designed to provide optical information to infants who are blind via a tactile modality. The device was first tested on sighted infants, to demonstrate that this type of stimulation on the abdomen is pleasant and rewarding in comparison to visual and auditory reinforcement. The preliminary results of this research allow us to consider the possibility of developing practical visual-substitution devices for infants who are blind
