The Effectiveness of Two Strategies for Teaching Students with Blindness and Mental Retardation.
Lane, G. M.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n2 p125-33 Mar-Apr 1996
Comparison of two strategies--manual guidance only and manual guidance plus verbal prompts--with 6 students (ages 9 to 19) whose multiple disabilities included total blindness and severe mental retardation found that prompting methods that require shifting verbal information to the performance of a manual task may interfere with the learning of students with such multiple disabilities.
