Espinosa, M. A.; Ochaita, E.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n5 p338-45 May 1998
This study evaluated the effects of three instructional methods (direct experience, cartographic representation (tactile map), and verbal description) on the spatial knowledge of 30 adults with blindness. Results indicated that participants' practical spatial knowledge was better when they learned with a tactile map than in either of the other conditions. (DB)
