This is the first book to offer an in-depth review of research pertaining to individuals with visual impairments across the full span of movement-related disciplines, from biomechanics and motor learning to physical education and Paralympic sport.

Covering physical activity across the life course, from children and young people through to older adults, and addressing the important topic of deafblindness in some depth, the book goes further than any other book published to date on visual impairment and movement. This is essential reading for all advanced students and researchers working in sport, exercise and disability, and an invaluable reference for practitioners and service providers, from in-service teachers and camp directors to physical therapists and physical activity promotion specialists.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-10-25 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

The increased awareness of cerebral visual impairment in children, combined with improved recognition of its wide ranging manifestations, has led to its recognition as the most common cause of visual impairment in children in the developed world. Yet the subject is in its infancy, with very little published to date. Information on this complex topic has been needed by all disciplines working with disabled children for many years. This ambitious book links the work of authors from many of the major research teams in this field, who have made significant contributions to the literature on the subject of cerebral visual impairment and provide a structured amalgam of the viewpoints of different specialists. The book contains some very novel concepts, which will be of great practical value to those who care for children with visual impairment due to brain injury. Summaries of the more specialist chapters as well as clear diagrams and a glossary have been provided to increase the book’s accessibility to a broader readership. This is an exciting and important field, to which this book makes a major contribution.
