    Abstract

    This study compared the memory processes underpinning the performance of 19 children with visual impairments and 19 sighted children on the Digit Span subtest of the Wechsler Intelligence Scales. No evidence was found to support earlier claims of the superior performance of children with visual impairments on any tasks of the subtest or of the children's greater awareness of memory processes.
