McAlpine, L. M.; Moore, C. L.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v89 n4 p349-58 Jul-Aug 1995
This study examined the performance of 16 children (ages 4 through 12) with visual impairments on tasks designed to assess their understanding of false belief, a central aspect of social understanding. The development of understanding of another's false belief was found to be delayed in children with severe visual impairments. (Author/SW)
