Do Children with Visual Impairments Demonstrate Superior Short-term Memory, Memory Strategies, and Metamemory?
Wyver, Shirley R.; Markham, Roslyn
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n11 p799-811 Nov 1998
This study compared the memory processes underpinning the performance of 19 children with visual impairments and 19 sighted children on the Digit Span subtest of the Wechsler Intelligence Scales. No support was found for claims of the superior performance of children with visual impairments on the subtest nor of a greater awareness of memory processes by these children. (DB)
