Gold, Deborah; Shaw, Alexander; Wolffe, Karen
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v104 n7 p431-443 Jul 2010
This survey of the social and leisure experiences of Canadian youths with visual impairments found that, in general, youths with low vision experienced more social challenges than did their peers who were blind. Levels of social support were not found to differ on the basis of level of vision, sex, or age. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
