An Investigation of the Visual and Tactile Spatial Reasoning Abilities of the Hearing Impaired/Deaf Student.
Hauptman, Anna R.
Two experiments involving 42 students from the Model Secondary School for the Deaf investigated both the visual and tactile components in the processing of spatial information. Test measures used were the Figures Rotations Test, Group Embedded Figures Test, and Tactile Rotations Test. The study suggested that spatial reasoning is a determining factor in several areas of cognitive growth, that this ability may follow a developmental learning pattern, and also that the symbolization process may be enhanced and developed by spatial reasoning learning.
