The Development of Phonological Awareness by Braille Users: A Review of the Research
Monson, Martin R.; Bowen, Sandy K.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v102 n4 p210-220 Apr 2008
This article presents a review of research on the development of phonological awareness by braille readers. The review determined that the relationship between phonological awareness and braille is uncertain because of the lack of commonality among the studies, the extent of contradictory findings, and the small number of studies involving beginning braille readers.
