Comeau, Michelle; Goupil, Georgette
The authors address the conditions of mainstreaming visually handicapped students in regular schools in Quebec. Types of schools for the visually impaired in Quebec are briefly described. Reported are findings from a study which evaluated different aspects of the mainstreaming of visually impaired students, including the perceptions of the students and their teachers, the academic performance of the visually handicapped students, and their socioeconomic status. Noted among results based on interviews with 33 students, are that most students want to go to regular school, but several of them would like to see their relationships with their classmates improve, and for all activities the handicapped children are significantly less chosen than their classmates with normal vision.
