Description of Adolescents with Visual Impairments Who Have Best Friends: A Pilot Study



Abstract: This article describes a pilot study of the friendships of 22 adolescents aged 13–19 with visual impairments. The study found that the female participants and the 13–15-year-old participants had more intimate friendships than did the male participants and the 16–19-year-old participants. The friends engaged in a variety of activities, talked about a wide array of topics, and spent time together in many places. Only a few participants reported that their visual impairments affected what they did with their friends.
