Abstract

The purpose of the study reported here was to determine the validity of the Blind Learning Aptitude Test (BLAT). The findings revealed significant correlations between scores on the BLAT and braille oral reading speed, comprehension, age, grade, years of blindness, intelligence, and achievement. The relationship between the BLAT scores and comprehension was stronger than the relationship between BLAT scores and braille reading speed.
