Description of Teachers' Perspectives on Selecting Literacy Media for Children with Visual Impairments



Abstract: Teachers from a residential school and a public school district that serve children with visual impairments read scenarios of five children with various eye conditions and ability levels, chose a primary literacy medium for each child, and presented rationales for their decisions. Although all the teachers cited child-related factors more than mechanical or social factors, the two groups of teachers differed in the weight they placed on different subcategories of these factors and their attitudes toward the use of braille.
