The desirability of integrating visually impaired children into the mainstream is now widely accepted. However, the quality of education which such children receive depends, to a certain extent, on where they happen to live. This book is the outcome of a study, commissioned by the RNIB, of visual impairment services in various parts of the country and their impact on the children for whom they are designed. Written to inform and assist those who are concerned in educating visually impaired children, and who are currently reviewing or developing services, it contains a compendium of reference material on which they may draw to inform committee members in their decision making. Section I analyzes the nature of provision which is currently made for visually impaired pupils in eight LEAs. Section II provides individual studies of 14 children with different types of visual impairment. Section III draws together the facts collected relating to various aspects of service provision and offers a commentary on their strengths and weaknesses. Section IV sets out guidelines for those who are providing for the needs of visually impaired children and covers a wide range to cater for the diverse circumstances in which the provision is made.
