Lecture du Braille intégral : processus mis en oeuvre et liens avec la pratique orthophonique

Abstract : Blindness is largely unknown to speech and language therapists, even though it has a real impact on the oral and written skills of individuals. Thanks to our theoretical knowledges of written language, visual impairment and Braille system, and by observing young blind people, this study focuses on the strategies used by blind people to read Braille in order to provide speech and language therapists with potential main lines of care. It appears that the process of learning Braille depends on the subject's background in blindness and in written language. For all people, expertise would result in the development of complex cognitive processes related to improved repair strategies, manual specialization, better tracking skills and a meaning-based lexical access strategy. Finally, these observations allow us to imagine speech and language therapy care axes essentially based on cognitive processes and semantic work. The limits of the study such as the lack of representativeness and the biases resulting from the form of our tests, require us to be vigilant about the conclusions. This work, at least, has the merit of encouraging the creation of a calibrated fluency test in Braille.
