Early Focus Second Edition: Working with Young Children Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired and Their Familiesby Rona L. Pogrund Diane L. Fazzi
Early intervention has increasingly been recognized as critical in the development and growth of children with visual impairments and other disabilities. Federal regulations have mandated early identification and assessment, underscoring its importance for children's well-being. This revised and updated edition of Early Focus, provides the important information you need to know.
Stressing the importance of early intervention in working with children with visual impairment, Pogrund (formerly special education, California State U.) and Fazzi (special education, California State U.) offer practitioners (teachers and other specialized professionals) an edited guide to working with children under age five. Eleven chapters review the developmental areas that are likely to be affected by vision loss and discuss the theory and knowledge base behind suggested educational practices in these areas. Chapters cover working with families, medical and functional implications, cognitive development, literacy, social development, promotion of independence and daily living skills, behavioral supports, motor and mobility development, and working with other professionals.
