Coping Strategies in Reading:  Multi-readers in the Norwegian General Education System

by Astrid Kristin Vik and Kerstin Fellenius;  Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, Vol. 101, No. 9 (September 2007)

This study investigated the coping strategies of 11 students for whom multiple reading media were recommended (multi-readers are those who combine braille, print, and auditory reading functionally at school and in leisure activities). These students were in Grades 5–10 in mainstream schools in Norway. Four students were identified as multi-readers. The dominant coping strategy for the students was auditory reading.
