Cognitive Remediation of Blind Students. Final Report.
Stephens, Beth; And Others
Thirteen congenitally blind students (6-18 years old) who participated in a 2-year Piagetian-oriented remedial program experienced significant gains on 22 of 26 reasoning variables (as measured by a Piagetian battery), compared to a non-treatment group of Ss which achieved significant gains on seven of 26 variables. Results suggested the need for programs to train teachers of the visually handicapped in the application of Piagetian-based strategies. (Included are information on adaptation of reasoning tasks for the blind Ss and detailed analyses of results in conservation, classification, mental imagery/spatial relations, and formal-abstract relation.)
