Ambrose, Grace V.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v94 n8 p509-21 Aug 2000
In an unfamiliar residential neighborhood, 24 10- and 6-year olds were individually evaluated and compared on their conceptual knowledge of the neighborhood. Findings indicate there are statistical and practical differences between the two age groups. Implications for teaching orientation and mobility to children with low vision are discussed.
