Description of Students with visual impairments: Do they understand their disability?

This study explored what children know about their visual impairments, how they communicate the information to other people, and their questions about their visual impairments. Eighty-nine children, aged 6-16, from 19 states completed a 35-item questionnaire that was administered by their teachers of students with visual impairments. Among the study's findings were that only 34 percent of the children could name their visual impairment and only 13 percent could state which part of their eye (or visual system) was affected.
