The educational and rehabilitation landscape has changed dramatically since the last issue of the journal was released to readers, given the need to adjust how tasks are accomplished as municipalities seek to limit the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). In this May-June 2020 issue, readers will find an editorial addressing the role of videoconferencing in education and a commentary on two surveys that were designed to analyze the needs of adults, students, teachers, and orientation and mobility practitioners in relation to COVID-19 and its effect on daily life. In addition, this issue includes articles on vision rehabilitation therapy, literacy, and perception. It also includes Practice Reports that cover consultation through videoconferencing, driving by people with low vision, access to medication containers by older adults, and a Research Report on mathematics graphics. This issue also includes CE opportunities.

The May-June 2020 issue of JVIB includes the following articles and features:

In her editorial, Dr. Sandy Lewis describes the fact that this issue is so packed with excellent articles, it was difficult for her to decide which one to read first. We expect the journal's readers to have the same problem, depending on their own areas of expertise or interest. The issue begins with an investigation into the efficacy of an application (app) for improving reading skills in children with visual impairments, which is followed by an article on object-perception skills. The next three articles touch on issues that will be of interest to early intervention service providers, orientation and mobility specialists, and vision rehabilitation therapists. The final article reports on how leisure activities affect health perception, life satisfaction, and self-esteem in individuals with visual impairments. In addition, a commentary describes an effort to identify gaps in the literature in regard to older individuals with vision loss and how they are meeting their transportation needs.

This issue also includes CE opportunities.

The March-April 2020 issue of JVIB includes the following articles and features:

Dear JVIB Reader:

Part Two of the Special Issue on Employment and Visual Impairment of the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) is now available on the Sage Publishing website. You may access the Table of Contents of the issue here:

https://journals.sagepub.com/toc/jvba/current

Guest editor Michele Capella McDonnall, research professor and director, The National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision, Mississippi State University, received such an overwhelming response to the call for papers for the Special Issue on Employment and Visual Impairment that the offerings needed to be separated into two parts. Part one was published in the November-December 2019 issue.

Part Two of the Special Issue on Employment and Visual Impairment includes an interesting investigation into the vocational rehabilitation outcomes of individuals with comorbid traumatic brain injury and visual impairment. It also includes an article that looks at self-efficacy in adults with retinitis pigmentosa and its relationship to timely service delivery to employed vocational rehabilitation applicants. Another article provides an overview of vocational rehabilitation data and the demographics, services, and long-run labor market trends these data show. A practice piece describes a training program in advanced computer skills for people who use access tools designed for people with low vision or blindness. A Research Report looks at the relationship of age of onset of vision loss to employment barriers. The issue also includes two commentaries on the role of leadership in building an inclusive workplace culture for people with visual impairments, and one on the effects of the Americans with Disabilities Act in the 30 years since its creation in 1990.

This issue also includes CE opportunities.

The January-February 2020 issue of JVIB includes the following articles and features:
