Divergent Development of Verbal Skills in Children Who Are Blind or Sighted
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v101 n12 p749-762 Dec 2007
This empirical study compared the average ages at which four children with congenital blindness acquired 29 verbal skills with given age norms for sighted children. The results indicated only small developmental delays in the acquisition of verbal skills in the four children, but a high degree of variability in developmental delays within and across nine categories of verbal skills.
