Description of Knowledge of Basic Concepts of Young Students with Visual Impairments Who Are Monolingual or Bilingual



Abstract: This article reports the findings of a study on the possible differences in the knowledge of basic concepts by young visually impaired students in two groups: 10 who were monolingual in English and 10 who were bilingual in English and Spanish. Although no significant differences were found in the two groups' knowledge of basic concepts, there was a significant correlation between the students' levels of vision and their scores on the Tactile Test of Basic Concepts in English. However, the mean scores of the two groups on this test indicated an advantage only for the monolingual group.
