From the introduction...
All parents face many decisions about their children: what to allow them to do, which schools to choose, and what limits to set. As a parent of a child with a visual impairment, you face many additional decisions and must find different ways of doing things. Your child may first go to programs for infants, and later, for preschoolers, before entering kindergarten.
The aim of this booklet is to help you select the program you think is best for your child, and to help you during transitions. This booklet focuses on how you select a program rather than on ways of locating a program in your particular community. How you find and use resources will depend on where you live.
