Description of Maximizing the Potential of Young Adults with Visual Impairments: The Metacognitive Element

An intervention project at the Hebrew University Learning Center for the Blind introduced metacognitive techniques to compensate for educational deficiencies in visually impaired young adults with a history of academic failure. The project, based on the Instrumental Enrichment cognitive training program, led to improvement in students’ motivation, awareness of their own learning strategies, more rapid and sustained academic progress, and increased autonomy in learning.
