When May a Child Who Is Visually Impaired Recognize a Face?
Markham, R.; Wyver, S.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n4 p325-32 Jul-Aug 1996
The ability of 16 school-age children with visual impairments and their sighted peers to recognize faces was compared. Although no intergroup differences were found in ability to identify entire faces, the visually impaired children were at a disadvantage when part of the face, especially the eyes, was not visible. Degree of visual acuity also affected facial recognition ability. (Author/DB)
