The Relationship between Visual Impairment and Gestures.
Frame, Melissa J.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v94 n3 p155-71 Mar 2000
A study found the gestural activity of 15 adolescents with visual impairments differed from that of 15 adolescents with sight. Subjects with visual impairments used more adapters (especially finger-to-hand gestures) and fewer conversational gestures. Differences in gestural activity by degree of visual impairment and grade in school were also observed. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
