VIDBE-Q Volume 66, Issue 2 59 as a parent of two children with visual impairments—one of whom is served as deafblind—who both receive academic instruction in a general education setting. As someone who recognizes the importance of access and implementing evidence- based interventions, I aimed to become familiar with the literature base and enlisted the help of colleagues who have experience in the field of visual impairments and deafblindness, as well as in research methodology, to help me explore the existing body of research in a meaningful way. My intention is to help others gain a more complete understanding of available interventions as well. The Present Study Journals are an avenue by which service providers and policy makers obtain new information about evidence-based instructional strategies. Accordingly, the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) fulfills this role for professionals working in the field of visual impairment. "Practitioners and researchers, policymakers and administrators, counselors and advocates rely on JVIB for its delivery of cutting-edge research and the most up-to-date practices in the field of visual impairment and blindness" (American Foundation for the Blind, 2020). To better understand the elements of published literature related to serving individuals with visual impairments and deafblindness, a systematic review of the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) was conducted (Jones et al., 2021).
