Description of Visually Impaired Students' Perceptions of Their Social integration in College



Abstract: This study identified the perceptions of six college students with visual impairments on what influenced their social activity on campus. It found that the influences were different for these students than for traditional students as identified in the literature. The findings suggest that it is necessary to intervene in the social development of young people with visual impairments before they attend college and to help them overcome such barriers as peers' discomfort with them in social situations and difficulties with transportation.
