Description of The Digital Social Interactions of Students with Visual Impairments: Findings from Two National Surveys

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.
