Abstract: The focus on the present work-in-progress was to develop and test intervention method for facilitation of reading comprehension by blind teenagers. The study relied Vygotsky's theory of internalization, and specifically on Piotr Gal'perin's theory of stepwise formation of mental actions. The participants were helped to generate what Gal'perin called the 'orienting basis' (abstract representation) through providing them with a external physical model to structure the their comprehension activities. Theory and methods are described and results of the first case study provided.
