Description of Growth and Development in Middle Childhood and Adolescence - Volume 1, Chapter 5 Foundations of Education

This chapter presents an overview of the four major developmental models: maturational, psychoanalytic, behavioral, and cognitive. Noting that young people who are visually impaired mature in ways similar to their sighted peers, this chapter focuses on three attributes of disability-specific considerations. They are physical (how a person looks), cognitive (how a person learns), and emotional (how a person feels). The common thread among these considerations is access to incidental information—details picked up through observation by those with good, functional vision—for young people with visual impairments. Included are three studies of adolescents with visual impairments and their levels of adjustment and involvement in various aspects of life.
