Blind children are entering the Nation's schools in larger numbers than ever before. In addition to those blinded by usual causes, a new eye condition primarily affecting prematurely born infants swept the Nation between 1945 and 1955, leaving thousands of visually handicapped children. Most of these are attaining school age at this time. There has been an increasing demand for statistical information of the type provided in this publication as more and more general and special educators have become involved in meeting the needs of these children. The summary findings presented are based on facts about the largest number of blind children known to have been included in an educational study in this special field. It was made possible through the cooperation of officials at the American Printing House for the Blind, who made available to the Office of Education information on the more than 14,500 children registered for the 1959-60 school year under the act "To Promote the Education of the Blind." Chapter I, Introduction, includes: (1) Scope; (2) Purpose; (3) Procedure; (4) Selected Local School Sample; and (5) Findings. Chapter ii, Degree of Vision, contains: (1) Levels of Vision; (2) Major Findings; and (3) Local and Residential School Students Compared. Chapter iii, Mode of Reading, presents: (1) Mode of Reading Related to Degree of Vision; (2) Local and Residential School Students Compared; and (3) Grade Distribution. Chapter iv, Implications, includes: (1) Accuracy of the Data; (2) Selecting the Most Suitable Mode of Reading; (3) Comparison of Local and Residential School Students; (4) Precise Eye Reports; (5) Terminology; (6) Retrolental Fibroplasia; (7) Grade Distributions; and (8) Conclusions. An appendix contains: (1) Table I--Levels of vision and modes of reading in residential schools, local schools, and combined; (2) Table II--Levels of vision and modes of reading for total local registrants, local selected sample, and total local registrants with sample removed; (3) Graph A--Degree of vision: total local, local selected sample, and local without selected sample compared; (4) Graph B--Students registered as readers of braille only: total local, local selected sample, and local without selected sample compared; (5) Graph C--Students registered as readers of print only: total local, local selected sample, and local without selected sample compared; and (6) Registration Form Used by American Printing House for the Blind (Replica of Portion Used to Tabulate Data).

Founded in 1858, the american printing house (aph) for the blind in louisville, kentucky, is the world's largest publisher of literature for the blind. In 1965-66 the operating budget exceeded $3 million, and there were 440 part-time employees. A history of the development and growth of aph includes controversy resulting in the final choice of standard english braille grade 2 as the standard type for the english-speaking world. Federal legislation supporting aph has increased from $10,000 provided by the act of 1879 to $935,000 for educational material plus $75,000 for advisory and consultant services in 1966. aph keeps abreast of ink print publications so that braille editions may be issued at the same time. In addition, schools and state departments of education may request braille editions of other books and materials. Also published are talking books, large type books, tangible materials, braille music, and literature for adult blind. Research in the education of blind children is conducted by the department of educational research. (My)
