The second edition introduces the new educational concept of "expanded core curriculum," comprised of nine key areas of learning that will prepare children with visual impairments to become independent and productive adults. Other additions include an overview of the latest equipment for learning and daily living; the best toilet-training methods; recent changes to special education under IDEA 2004; and the special needs of children with visual impairments who also have autism. And like all of our parents' guides, it features profiles of children and families, and first-hand statements from parents who share the lessons they have learned along the way.

Now enhanced with extensive new material and thoroughly revised, Children with Visual Impairments continues to be the reference that parents will turn to again and again as theirchildren grow and learn.
