The Use of Language in Simple Classification Tasks by Children Who Are Blind.
Dimcovic, N.; Tobin, M. J.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v89 n5 p448-59 Sep-Oct 1995
Verbal and figurative classification tasks were presented to 30 blind and 30 sighted children (ages 6 to 11). Although younger blind children were significantly less efficient on tasks, older ones reached or were close to the level of their sighted peers. Analysis illustrates how the blind children adjusted their conceptual knowledge to their lexicon, or vice versa. (Author/DB)
