A Field Experiment of Minimum Physical Fitness of Children with Visual Impairments.
Meek, G. A.; Maguire, J. F.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n1 p77-80 Jan-Feb 1996
This experiment employed simple exercises to ascertain whether 49 children (ages 9-16) with partial or complete blindness had lesser levels of physical fitness than 24 fully sighted controls. Results found low rates of fitness among both groups, but considerably lower among students with visual impairments. Possible problems with test validity are discussed. (PB)
