In general, reading up on grief and loss process/"stages" helps with management.

This isn't exactly what you're asking for, but this document, Usher Syndrome in
the School Setting may be helpful.
I have found a few other things, but not really enough content to be relevant.
Most articles and research studies emphasize learning compensatory skills and
having friends and mentors with similar disabilities.

Hi Friends and Families-
I'm looking for articles on how elementary aged children cope with vision loss,
what usually happens in reaction to confirmation that their vision is not the
same as others and is decreased. Also helpful would be anything that discusses
negative behavior in reaction to this kind of news, too, and what can be done
at school and home to help them cope (other than traditional therapy or play
therapy). Many thanks!
