Año 2008. Número 102 (9)

Aging: An Age-Cohort Study of Older Adults With and Without Visual Impairments: Activity, Independence, and Life Satisfaction
Gretchen A. Good; Steven LaGrow and Fiona Alpass
This survey of 560 older adults who were visually impaired or sighted analyzed whether the two groups differed in their levels of activity, independence, and life satisfaction and the degree to which activity and independence contribute to the prediction of life satisfaction. Implications for rehabilitation services are discussed pp 517-527
Assistive Technology: The Digital Social Interactions of Students with Visual Impairments: Findings from Two National Surveys
Stacy M. Kelly and Thomas J. Smith
This study compared the use of computers and telephones by preadolescent and adolescent students with visual impairments and those with other disabilities using data from the Special Education Elementary Longitudinal Study and the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2. It found that both groups of students with visual impairments used computers and received telephone calls significantly less often than did students in some other disability groups. The implications of these findings for the isolation of students with visual impairments and training in assistive technology are discussed pp 528-539
Multiple Disabilities: Evidence-Based Communication Practices for Children with Visual Impairments and Additional Disabilities: An Examination of Single-Subject Design Studies
Amy T. Parker; Eric S. Grimmett and Sharon Summers
This review examines practices for building effective communication strategies for children with visual impairments, including those with additional disabilities, that have been tested by single-subject design methodology. The authors found 30 studies that met the search criteria and grouped intervention strategies to align any evidence of the replication of successful outcomes pp 540-552
Braille: An Investigation of the Spelling Skills of Braille Readers
Christine Clark and Julia B. Stoner
This study compared the spelling skills of students who are braille readers to a normative sample. The Test of Written Spelling was administered to 23 students who are blind at various grade levels to ascertain their spelling ability. A one-sample t-test indicated no significant difference in spelling ability. Implications are discussed pp 553-563
