Excerpt

The authors would like to thank the children, parents and school staff who made the Bristol research possible. They would also like to thank the Bristol Sensory Impaired Children’s Service—Vision Impairment Team for their support and interest in the project. We are also grateful to the Guide Dogs Association for the Blind who provided financial support for the research.

A special thanks is due to Sue Rogers for the photographs and to Sue Rogers and Mary Wight for their suggestions, comments and enthusiasm. We are also indebted to Tania Thompson and Tom Hutchison for comments on the chapter concerning vision and visual impairment, and to Liz Fisher for her helpful advice on aspects of optometry. Valeric Webster provided a very helpful editorial review that shaped the final organisation of the book. A special thanks goes to Patrick Roe for his support and to Simon Daniel, whose very first social encounters took place during the writing of this book.
