Hand Movement Training in Braille Reading.
Wormsley, Diane P.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v75 n8 p327-31 Oct 1981
Twenty-one children ages 6 through 13 were taught to use their hands independently when reading braille to determine how this pattern of hand movements affected reading variables, excluding character recognition. The results strongly suggested that skill in tracking and use of an efficient hand movement pattern is closely tied to perceptual ability. (Author)
