The Social Life and Emotional State of Adolescent Children of Parents Who Are Blind and Sighted: A Pilot Study
Duvdevany, Ilana; Moin, Victor; Yahav, Rivka
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v101 n3 p160-171 Mar 2007
This pilot study compared the development of two groups of adolescents--those whose parents were blind and those whose parents were sighted. It found that there were no essential differences between the groups. Moreover, the friendship relationships, feelings toward parents, and some essential characteristics of the adolescents' emotional state were more positive among the adolescents whose parents were blind. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
