Description of Verbalism in the Narrative Language of Children Who Are Blind and Sighted

This study examined the use of verbalisms by 62 children aged 7–14 who were totally blind from birth and 64 sighted children. It found that a child's degree of sight and gender did not affect the frequency with which verbalisms were used; only age had a significant positive effect. The study shows that language is a flexible structure that is used correctly by children who are congenitally blind as they adapt to the language used by those around them.
