A Best-Evidence Synthesis of Research on Orientation and Mobility Involving Tactile Maps and Models
Wright, Tessa; Harris, Beth; Sticken, Eric
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v104 n2 p95-106 Feb 2010
A review of the literature from 1965 to 2008 on tactile maps and models in orientation and mobility yielded four pre-experimental and three experimental articles. The articles were analyzed via best-evidence synthesis--a combined narrative and statistical approach--allowing for recommendations for the most effective use of tactile maps and models. (Contains 2 tables.)
