Abstract

The study examined question frequencies and types in language samples from 36 sighted and visually impaired children. Blind, low vision, and sighted groups between the ages of 4 and 10 produced spontaneous samples while discussing a group of household objects. An ANOVA demonstrated significant differences between blind/sighted and low vision/sighted groups in the ratio of questions asked per 100 utterances. Non-statistical comparison of question types indicated some minor distinctions of type usage by age and visual function.
