The Treasure in Leisure Activities: Fostering Resilience in Young People Who Are Blind
Jessup, Glenda M.; Cornell, Elaine; Bundy, Anita C.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v104 n7 p419-430 Jul 2010
Because leisure activities are often viewed as optional, their value to people with disabilities may not be recognized. This study explored the benefits of leisure activities for eight young people who are blind. These activities provided them with supportive relationships, a desirable identity, experiences of power and control, and experiences of social justice. They enabled the young people we studied to thrive despite adversity. (Contains 1 table.)
