"This is the first comprehensive, hands-on book for the newly visually impaired and their families. It provides concise, practical information on learning to live with what has become the second major cause of disability in the United States. Designed for use by families, it presents detailed instructions to:

  • Deal with your emotions and fight depression
  • Contact organizations and get information
  • Obtain federal and financial aid
  • Use all of your senses more effectively
  • Adapt your home and do household chores
  • Handle paperwork and correspondence independently
  • Purchase aids and technology that will further your goals
  • Avoid embarrassment and become socially active
  • Deal with changing family roles
The Guide is written in a non-technical, basic style that allows it to present task instructions in a step-by-step manner that will meet a wide range of needs for those with low vision and those with no vision. Each chapter was designed to be used independent of the others, so the reader can take information as needed from one, several, or all chapters."
