Description of The Phonological-Awareness Skills of Children Who Are Blind

The phonological-awareness skills of 19 New Zealand children who are blind and were using braille as their reading medium were compared to those of a reading-age-matched control group of sighted children who were three years younger. Children who had difficulty reading braille were delayed in their development of phonological awareness, demonstrating strengths and weaknesses that were similar to those of the younger sighted children.
