Students with Visual Impairments: Do They Understand Their Disability?
Sacks, S. Z.; Corn, A. L.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n5 p412-22 Sep-Oct 1996
A survey of 89 children and adolescents (ages 6 through 16) with visual impairments found that only 34% knew the name of their visual impairment and 14% knew how they acquired their visual impairment. The need for information materials geared to children and for an open environment in which children can ask questions is emphasized. (CR)
