Moved by the Spirit: A Call to Work with People Living with Blindness and Visual Impairments is an out-of-the-ordinary book where the author shares her extraordinary 35-year journey teaching people in Broward County who are living with blindness and visual impairments. The book has been described as educational, encouraging and spiritual.
All ages will benefit from reading this book. However, the younger generation searching for a rewarding career will learn about one of the most gratifying professions that exists but you rarely hear discussed—teaching people who are blind and visually impaired. At this time there is a shortage of professionals in this field and qualified and trained individuals are in demand.
As our growing population is living longer, there is an increased likelihood of encountering and dealing with blindness or visual impairment. Most people run away from this topic as opposed to taking the time to become educated and discover that “there is life after blindness or vision loss.”
Moved by the Spirit has been described as an excellent resource guide for people living with any sight loss as well as for their family and friends.
This book debunks many myths and misconceptions and will inform the reader of a resource book containing services in the community that are mostly available free of charge, that one can access in Dade and Broward Counties, as well as throughout the United States.
The author is available to speak to groups and conduct sensitivity training sessions. Dolores Hanley McDiarmid can be contacted at [email protected]st.net or 954-684-6708. Available in print and on Kindle, through Amazon.com.
