Ponchillia, P. E.; Durant, P. A.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v89 n5 p432-39 Sep-Oct 1995
A nationwide survey of braille instructors in adult rehabilitation centers found that: most teachers taught braille to fewer than 20 percent of clients; few taught complex reading skills; instructors' attitudes were influenced by their training site, type of college degree, and degree of vision; and teaching behaviors were affected by teaching site, degree of vision, and degree type.
