Description of The Lifestyles of Blind, Low Vision, and Sighted Youths: A Quantitative Comparison



Abstract: In this quantitative research study, 16 blind students, 16 low vision students, and 16 sighted students aged 15–21 and their parents were interviewed by telephone using questionnaires designed to examine four areas: academic involvement and performance, daily living and personal care activities, recreation and leisure activities, and work and vocational experiences. A time-diary protocol was also used to obtain data from each student in three telephone interviews during the calendar year. Similarities and differences among the three groups, as well as implications of the findings for service providers, are discussed.
