BATISTA, Cecilia Guarnieri; NUNES, Sylvia da Silveira  y  HORINO, Letícia Enya. Assisted assessment of cognitive abilities in children with visual impairment and learning difficulties. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2004, vol.17, n.3, pp.381-393. ISSN 0102-7972.

This investigation aims at discussing a procedure of assessment of the "potential developmental level", according to the Vygostky's conception, in children with visual impairment (low vision or blindness) and with learning difficulties. In the 2 studies that are reported, the assessment procedure consisted of Verbal WISC administration, group assessment of school abilities and individual assisted assessment. The analysis was focused on the children with the lower IQ values. In the second study, the procedure also comprised the search for episodes of "smartness", indicating cognitive abilities, out of the formal assessment procedure. The discussion about modalities of assessment indicated possible sources of difficulty for the search of a reliable "potential developmental level" in children with learning difficulties.

Palabras clave : Assisted assessment; children with learning difficulties; child development and visual impairment; child development and learning difficulties.
