Assessment: Exploring Assessment Processes in Specialized Schools for Students Who Are Visually Impaired
Cheryl Kamei Hannan, print edition pp 69-79
Abstract: In this qualitative study, various professionals in specialized schools for students who are visually impaired provided information on assessment tools; how information was used to plan Individualized Education Programs; and their opinions on the reliability, validity, and usefulness of various measurements. The implications of the findings for policy guidelines and high-stakes decisions are explored
Early Intervention: Literacy in Early Intervention for Children with Visual Impairments: Insights from Individual Cases
Karen A. Erickson; Deborah Hatton; Vicky Roy, DanaLee Fox and Diane Renne, print edition pp 80-95
Abstract: A qualitative case study design was used to investigate the ways in which two early interventionists supported emergent literacy development for infants and toddlers with visual impairment. Three themes are addressed: (1) the importance of a family-centered approach in addressing emergent literacy in early intervention; (2) the role of the early interventionist in language and concept development; and (3) the need to focus on the senses as they relate to literacy. The findings provide practical insights into the role of the early interventionist in supporting early literacy development
Self-concept: Self-concept, Adjustment to Blindness, and Quality of Friendship Among Adolescents with Visual Impairments
Hefziba Lifshitz; Irit Hen and Izhak Weisse, print edition pp 96-107
Abstract: The self-concept and quality of friendship of 40 adolescents with visual impairments (20 in public schools and 20 in a residential school) were compared to those of 41 sighted adolescents. The findings indicate a similar self-concept profile for sighted adolescents and adolescents with visual impairments, although the scores of the participants with visual impairments were higher in all domains except their fathers' concept of them. The implications of these findings are discussed
