Abstract

Students with visual impairment have the same range of mental abilities as their sighted peers. However, these students experience academic failure, especially in courses in which visual themes are dominant, as they cannot use their sense of sight to process information sufficiently. One of the courses that students with visual impairment have the most difficulty with is science as it contains many visual materials. This study aimed to determine whether students with visual impairment can learn the concept of sound insulation using tactile documents that highlight their haptic senses. The study was implemented in a state secondary school for the visually impaired, and 4 students with visual impairment (blind) participated in the activity. It was observed that all students actively participated during the exercise. The students stated that the practice was fun, instructive, and suitable for teaching the targeted concept.
