About the Author:

M. Cay Holbrook holds a doctorate in special education from Florida State University. She has educated children with visual impairments and served as an advocate and instructor for almost twenty years. Currently, she is Associate Professor in the Department of Teacher Education at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

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
