Edwards, Rachel; Ungar, Simon; Blades, Mark
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n7 p512-21 Jul 1998
This study evaluated descriptions, either from memory or by using a map (print or tactile), of 12 visually impaired and 12 sighted elementary grade children of two routes around their schools. Descriptions from maps were generally poorer than those from memory. Qualitative differences were also found between descriptions of visually impaired and sighted children and between younger and older children. (DB)
