Learning Problems in Connection with Special Information Media for the Visually Handicapped - A Selected Bibliography.
Ostberg, Ann-Mari; Lindqvist, Bengt
The bibliography was compiled with the intent to cover areas of special interest with regard to a research program at the Teachers College of Uppsala, Sweden dealing with problems in connection with the special information media for the blind which serve as substitutes for ink-print. Entered in the first section - an introduction to blindness - are bibliographies, abstract journals, periodicals, reviews of research, and other general literature on the education of the blind. The rest of the bibliographic material is divided into three sections from the point of view of the sensory channel providing information: Auding, Tactile Information, and Visual Information with Partial Sight. Literature dealing with more than one area is cross referenced, and most books and doctoral dissertations are annotated. The hearing section lists research and literature reviews and literature on comparison of auditory and visual perception, barriers to effective listening, critical listening, distant learning (i.e. teleteaching, homebound instruction), intelligence and listening, listening with regard to the blind, note-taking, rate-controlled speech, and teaching of listening. Literature treating braille, form perception, maps, illustrations, and size and texture discrimination is entered in the tactile information section. (KW)
