The Student with a Visual Disability and a Learning Disability.
Erin, Jane N.; Koenig, Alan J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v30 n3 p309-20 May-Jun 1997
Noting a high incidence of learning disabilities among students with visual impairments, this article compares definitions of the two conditions. Common assessment approaches are discussed and those inappropriate for students with low vision or blindness are identified. Suggested intervention approaches include adaptation of the environment, instruction in compensatory skills, vision enhancement, and use of learning strategies. (DB)
