Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The publisher has delivered another excellent volume in its "Special Needs Collection" (see also Children with Cerebral Palsy, LJ 4/1/91, and Children with Mental Retardation, Woodbine House, 1993). Following the easy-to-use format established by the other texts in the collection, the chapters?each written by authoritative authors?deal with the medical, emotional, legal, educational, developmental, and day-to-day issues that must be faced by the parents and families of children with visual impairments. Each chapter closes with parental statements that provide special insight for those with children whose impairment is newly diagnosed. A comprehensive glossary and an extensive list of national and state resources round out the book. Essential for parenting and special needs collections.?KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Auburn, Wash.

From Booklist

Loaded with instructive guidance and concrete support, this fine resource offers a great deal of information and reassurance to parents who have children with visual impairments. With authority and clarity, special educator Holbrook and her contributors (educators, medical specialists, and other experts) provide straightforward, demystifying facts on pertinent medical, emotional, social, educational, and family issues. Each chapter's discussion is followed by helpful, concrete guidance for parents to aid them in fostering their child's independence, self-esteem, mobility, and literacy. Specific data on the assessment and causes of visual impairments, appropriate educational intervention and settings, and disability law arm parents with critical knowledge to deal with outside professionals, siblings, daily routines, and so forth. Holbrook, who also has a child with a visual impairment, concludes each chapter with pithy quotes from actual parents. Although geared to parents of young children, this book will also be valuable to those with older children or children with multiple disabilities. A bibliography, a glossary, and a resource list are excellent appendixes. An important addition to library collections. Irene Wood

We searched for five years for answers to our questions about our daughter's eye problems. Each time we got new information, I found the official termonology in this book with a clear, concise explanation for what was written in the doctor's reports. This book explains the different exams and tests as well as what you can to do help your child get the most out of the vision he/she has. Also includes valuable resources and other information. A must have if your child has, or you suspect your child has, a visual impairment.

I work with blind and visually impaired children as a teacher. The parents with whom I work have taught me a great deal, and reading this book has helped me to understand some of their concerns, questions, and what they have gone through.
New teachers with B/VI students seems to go through a similar process when they hear they will have a student who is unique in this way, so it has helped me have more productive conversations with them, as well.
I have met the editor at a conference. Not surprised she produced such a quality piece of work. A must buy, and a very good price.

My daughter has a ONH/SOD. I found this book to be very informative. The only problem that I had with it was the way it made me feel. I know stating the facts is one thing. But it made me feel that the author was a little to cold. I also felt that the author had a JOB to write this book. I did not feel any warmth or compassion at all. It was purely factual.
