General Education Teachers' Ratings of the Academic Engagement Level of Students Who Read Braille: A Comparison with Sighted Peers
Bardin, Julie A.; Lewis, Sandra
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n8 p479-492 Aug 2011
English and language arts teachers of braille-reading students in general education classes rated these students' academic engagement and the academic achievement of low- and average-achieving sighted students in the same classrooms. The braille readers were found to be statistically similar to the low-achieving students with regard to effort, self-determination, and inattention. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
