When You Meet Blind People . . .
 
 
  • Do ask if you can be of help.
  • Do ask if they want to take your arm.
  • Do speak in a normal voice-most blind people are not deaf.
  • Do identify yourself on entering a room and tell them if you are leaving.
  • Do allow them the respect and dignity due to any individual. Don't give unwanted assistance.
  • Don't grab, push or pull them.
  • Don't avoid words such as look or see, they're in everyone's vocabulary.
  • Don't play "guess who," or walk away and leave them talking to themselves.
