K Chitra.

Abstract
Background: This is really hard to survive for one who born with eyes but no sight. Adolescence (from Latin adolescere, meaning “to grow up”) this is their age to explore the world with full of desires, dreams when they want to touch every color of life with their eyes, but if they lost their sight, it is colorless and feeling lifeless. They do not live in darkness, darkness lives in them, and it can cause stress.

Objectives: The major endeavor of the study was to find the positive result of audio-assisted teaching module of progressive muscle relaxation technique on the level of stress among visually impaired adolescents in selected visually impaired school at Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India.

Materials and Methods: The main study was conducted in National Institute of visually impaired school at Rajpur road, Dehradun, using pre-experimental one group, pre-post-test design and level of stress were assessed through interview method using modified stress scale. 100 samples were haggard through non-probability convenient sampling method. The audio-assisted teaching module of progressive muscle relaxation technique was used as an intervention for visually impaired adolescents for 10 days followed by post-test-assessment level of stress. It showed the progress in the paired and unpaired t=test. The findings of the study showed that progressive muscle relaxation technique was more effective (t = 26.26) significance at 0.05 level).

Results: Progressive muscle relaxation technique helps tensed muscles to relax in the skeleton-muscular system, and it improves the reduction of stress level.

Conclusion: Progressive muscle relaxation technique is a useful method to improve the level of stress among visually impaired adolescents. It ensures the huge implication of reduction in the level of stress, thereby influencing the dependability in adolescent’s living.

Key words: Audio-assisted Teaching Module; Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique; Stress; Visually Impaired Adolescents
