About the Book :

The present study is based on the data collected from a sample of blind persons matched with their sighted counterparts on the basis of certain variables. Apart from this a representative sample of the sighted from the general public who might or might not have come in contact with the blind was also taken separately. The opinions of the employers of the blind have also been incorporated in the study. One of the significant findings of this study is that the successful integration of the blind with the sighted depends on the extent of exposure of the blind to the sighted in their early years of life, their independence in physical mobility, their economic independence and self confidence in discharging their duties either as students or as workers.
