Description of Personal-Space Preference among Male Elementary and High School Students with and without Visual Impairments



Abstract: This study compared three types of personal-space preference (PSP)--Initial PSP, Approach PSP, and Stop-Distance PSP--of male elementary and high school students in talking with an adult female conversation partner in a natural conversation setting. The boys were divided into three groups: boys with severe visual impairments, sighted boys who were blindfolded, and sighted boys with no visual restrictions. The visually impaired boys and the sighted, blindfolded boys chose smaller Initial PSPs, but on Approach PSP and Stop-Distance PSP, all three groups performed comparably.
