Knowledge of Concept Prototypes of Students Who Are Blind or Have Low Vision.
Zeppuhar, Mary Ellen; Walls, Richard T.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n11 p812-22 Nov 1998
Thirty-seven students who were blind or had low vision listed as many examples of 10 categories as they could and the prototype order of examples was scored. No differences between blind or low-vision students were found, but categories with which the students had a greater degree of direct sensory experience produced more examples and higher prototype-order scores.
