Education for the Blind
An American federal law approved in 1975 guarantees blind students a free public education. It requires that all states provide a free public education in the best environment to children who suffer mental or physical problems. To help blind students learn, schools are also required to provide special books published for the blind. In these books, words are formed using raised areas of paper which blind people feel with their fingers.Schools also provide other services and equipment to help blind people learn. Many children with sight problems attend their local public schools with other children. They are taught the same subjects as other students their age. But they also receive special life skills training. This could include learning how to move and work successfully within the community. It could also mean special training on equipment to make life easier.
Some schools even have special vision instructors. These are trained professionals who work directly with blind students.
