Abstract: This article presents a qualitative study of the ways in which 25 Hungarian children aged 5-9 who were blind dealt with different types of elementary mathematical problems. The study found that the children dealt with numbers in five ways and experienced numbers in four ways. Furthermore, although the children went through the same stages of development as do sighted children, their ways of dealing with numbers had some specific characteristics.
Orientation and Mobility
Abstract: This study explored the effects of orientation and mobility (O&M) training and O&M instructors on the lives of 15 participants in New Zealand. The participants thought that O&M was essential and a professional domain and that their instructors were both effective and ineffective. They also thought that the white cane and dependence are stigmatizing and that restrictions on movement and the lack of O&M instruction are disabling.
