At Risk: Blind Children and Standardized Testing.
Simmons, Joyce Nesker; Davidson, Iain F. W. K.
B.C. Journal of Special Education, v16 n1 p51-58 1992
This article examines special problems in assessing young blind children resulting from their great heterogeneity. Case studies are offered to illustrate the irresponsibility of applying standardized tests developed for sighted populations to blind children who have very different experiential backgrounds. Positive principles for assessment of the blind child in context are offered. (DB)
