Overview

Written by someone who has walked the path of deteriorating eyesight and worked as a qualified crisis counsellor, this handbook is designed to show families, friends and colleagues of the visually impaired how to offer support without being patronising.For many people with sight loss, the real problems aren't about mobility and access to information. Technology and training can cover these bases and, once a certain degree of competence has been reached, there are ample opportunities for independent exploration.The real problem that comes with being sight-impaired in the 21st century has to do with convincing others that few things are out of reach. Blind people have dreams as big as sighted people, and if they have the determination and courage to pursue those dreams, why stop them?If you or someone you know has been worried about helping a blind companion cope, this book may radically change your outlook. Prepare to be surprised, challenged and even inspired as you consider what new paths might open up as you adopt a fresh approach.
