Is Blindness A Handicap?
Tobin, Michael J.
British Journal of Special Education, v25 n3 p107-13 Sep 1998
This paper argues that the handicapping effects of blindness on children are specific to certain educational and social contexts, with the most substantive difficulties resulting from lack of convergent and complementary information through various sensory channels and the depressed speed of information processing.
