Description of Inferences and Word Associations of Children with Visual Impairments

A comparison of the performance of children with congenital visual impairments and sighted children on two tasks involving inferences found some differences between the two groups when the information was visual, but not when it was nonvisual. The results of a word association task found that visual impairment affected some aspects of responses to both visual and nonvisual items, but had little effect on other aspects. Differences in semantic and lexical functioning seem to be related to the way the two groups acquire information.
