A Framework for Understanding the Literacy of Individuals with Visual Impairments.
Koenig, A. J.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v86 n7 p277-84 Sep 1992
This article proposes a four-component framework for understanding the literacy of individuals with visual impairments, and defines two levels of literacy--basic (or academic) and functional (or practical) literacy. Implications are drawn for development of self-advocacy skills, development of standards for judging literacy in this population, and instructional efficacy. (DB)
