The Effect of Braille Orthography on Blind Children's Phonological Awareness.
Dodd, Barbara
Journal of Research in Reading, v23 n1 p1-11 Feb 2000
Assesses fifteen 7- to 12-year-old blind children using standardized measures of intelligence, spelling and reading. Finds they performed poorer when reading than their chronological age would predict. Compares blind and age-matched children's ability to segment heard words, which are written in Braille with and without contractions. Finds words with Braille contractions were less well segmented by the blind children. (RS)
