Abstract

Religion frequently plays a role in parents' adaptation to their children's disability. This article examines the religious perceptions of 161 parents of children with visual impairments, as indicated in their responses to a questionnaire. The areas that were investigated included changes in parents' religious beliefs following the diagnosis of their children's disability, interpretations of the cause of the disability, and perceptions of support from their religious communities.
