Early Intervention

Conversational Interactions Between Mothers and Their Infants Who Are Congenitally Blind, Have Low Vision, or Are Sighted--print edition page(s) 691-703

Gina Conti-Ramsden and Miguel PĂ©rez-Pereira

Abstract: This study of the conversational interactions of three mothers and their infants--one who was sighted, one with low vision, and one who was congenitally blind--found similarities between the sighted and low vision dyads. However, the mother of the blind infant talked more and used more directives, and her directives contained more descriptions and were more likely to occur in clusters. The complex nature of directives and their adaptive role with infants who are blind are discussed.

Barbara L. Loeding and James P. Greenan

Abstract: This study examined the relationship between students' self-ratings and teachers' ratings of four sets of generalizable skills. The students, who were deaf, hard-of-hearing, or blind or had low vision were enrolled in vocational classes at two residential secondary schools. The findings revealed little agreement between the students and their teachers about the students' levels of skills.
