Making It Work by Carol Castellano

Some are beginning to understand that educating the blind and visually impaired exclusively in special schools or classrooms amounts to apartheid. Others are beginning to understand they must comply with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. In either case teachers have more blind and visually impaired students in their classrooms, and are beginning to understand that teaching them is a creative process; the teacher learns to be more articulate, sensitive and realistic, and the student learns how to deal with the sighted world. Consultant Castellano emphasizes the positive in her pragmatic approach, addressing such issues as having correct expectations, using the skills and tools associated with blindness, assessing curriculum, and managing the classroom. Her text is unique in that it acknowledges the prejudices and misperceptions of the sighted, although it contains a few lapses into the medical model and the "poster child" mentality.
