The purpose of this book is to contribute to the understanding of Developmental O and M, independent movement and travel in blind children. The goals of this book are: To increase knowledge of a developmental perspective for the young blind child with positive, useful information, gained from many years of experience working with blind children as an O and M professional To increase confidence both in thinking about the blind child's O and M needs and in interactions with the blind child To promote in blind children a positive thinking about their own movement and travel and to view themselves as travelers To facilitate the setting of age -and stage- appropriate movement and travel expectations for blind children. To offer an alternative "developmental approach" to conventional practices which derive from an "adult-centered model" To be a provocative catalyst for positive change in the field of O and M Unlike many books and articles on orientation and mobility (O&M) for blind children, this one is not about the effect of blindness on movement. Such an inquiry is self defeating from the start, as it often begins with misconceptions and deficit-thinking about blindness and the blind child's early motor development. Instead, this book is about the effect of movement on development and the importance of movement experiences for the development of independent movement and travel in blind children. It has a clear premise: blind children must become "active movers" if they are to become independent " travelers."

All parents hope for an independent future for their blind/visually impaired child. To turn that hope into a reality, parents need to understand the scope of skill development that must be addressed, along with the importance of equal expectations for the child's development, proper training, and opportunity to practice and develop skills. But what if expectations are low, training in blindness skills is scanty or even absent, and overprotection prevents the blind/VI child from learning and practicing skills? The idea of an independent future can remain a distant dream. The purpose of this book is to guide parents and teachers in fostering the blind/visually impaired child's skill development in such critical areas as academics, independent movement and travel, social interaction, daily living, and selfadvocacy, so that he or she will truly be on the road to an independent future. A practical, easy to use guide, written in plain English, the book warns about common problem areas and provides ideas for getting and keeping the child's education and development on track. It highlights the interplay between skills and competence, confidence, selfrespect, and the respect of others. Of the small number of books and videos available on the subject, most were written by professionals in the field and many begin with the supposition that blindness is at best sad and at worst tragic. Few maybe none have the ardent passion for independence that the parent of a blind/visually impaired child brings to the subject. Instead of overwhelming parents and teachers with the difficulty of the undertaking before them, Getting Ready for College Begins in Third Grade will inspire their confidence and enthusiasm for the task at hand.

Not long ago, most blind and visually impaired people grew up without ever playing sports; they sat on the sidelines, and kept score during gym—protected rather than included. In the 1980s, few people had ever heard of the Paralympic Games or accessible recreation. Today, promising blind athletes can receive residency at the US Olympic Training Center; runners compete for prize money and national championships, and most ski resorts offer adaptive programs throughout the year where blind people can ski, cycle, and kayak—often for free. The Paralympic movement, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and everincreasing expectation for inclusion among the disabled have inspired an explosion of accessible sports, fitness, and recreation programs that accommodate the blind. The Encyclopedia of Sports & Recreation for People with Visual Impairments is the first consumerfocused, actionoriented guide to this new world of accessible activity, profiling the people, programs, and products that are helping move blind and visually impaired people from the sidelines into the game. This groundbreaking guide profiles every accessible blind sport and recreation activity with entries that outline how athletes (both novice and elite) got involved in the sport and how participation has shaped their life. The book also profiles major blind sports organizations and includes chapter and resource listings on camps and accessible recreation providers. Through this book, blind people will be inspired to embrace sports as the rest of society does—as a vital component of personal expression and human interaction that opens paths to adventure, confidence, and lifelong health and fitness.

Keine andere Autorin hat über die Jahrzehnte hin den Rassenkonflikt in Amerika so konsequent und leidenschaftlich beschrieben wie die Literaturnobelpreisträgerin Toni Morrison. "Gott, hilf dem Kind" setzt den mit "Jazz" begonnenen Zyklus fort, in dem Morrison die Situation der Schwarzen in den USA beleuchtet. Ein weiterer großer Roman der im Kampf gegen Rassismus engagierten Autorin. Lula Ann ist ein so tiefschwarzes Baby, dass ihre Mutter Sweetness bei der Geburt fast zu Tode erschrickt und der Vater die junge Familie auf der Stelle verlässt, weil er nicht glauben kann, dass dieses Kind von ihm ist. Sweetness erzieht Lula Ann zu Gehorsam und Unterwürfigkeit, nur nicht auffallen, aus Angst vor rassistischen Angriffen. Doch die heranwachsende Tochter sträubt sich gegen die verordnete Angepasstheit. Sie ändert ihren Namen, in Bride, kleidet sich in provokant strahlendes Weiß, macht Karriere bei einer Kosmetikfirma, verliebt sich in einen geheimnisvollen Mann und befreit sich auf ihre Weise von der Vergangenheit. Zwei starke Frauen, zwei verschiedene Lebensentwürfe, in dem Versuch, sich zu schützen und gleichzeitig zu behaupten. Ein Roman, der zur Weltliteratur gehört.

An einem eiskalten Märztag betritt ein Unbekannter die Highschool von Broken Branch und nimmt die Kinder der dritten Klasse als Geiseln. Niemand weiß, wer er ist. Niemand weiß, was er will. Weder Officer Meg Barrett, die von der Einsatzzentrale an die Schule ihrer Tochter gerufen wird. Noch Evelyn Oliver, die Lehrerin, die gemeinsam mit den Kindern in der Gewalt des Geiselnehmers ausharrt. Oder die dreizehnjährige Augie Baker, die bereit ist, alles zu tun, um ihren kleinen Bruder zu retten. Mit jeder Minute, die vergeht, treten die verborgenen Ängste und Zerwürfnisse der Bewohner von Broken Branch immer mehr zutage, während sie verzweifelt einen Weg suchen, ihre Kinder aus den Fängen des Geiselnehmers zu befreien.
