Seeing with Your Fingers: Kids with Blindness and Visual Impairment
by Sheila Stewart & Camden Flath
People who can see with their eyes find it hard to imagine what life must be like for those with blindness or visual impairment. For thousands of kids, though, this is a reality. While some are born with blindness or some type of visual impairment, others lose their sight later on because of a disease, infection, or injury. For kids with blindness or visual impairment, life presents a unique set of challenges. Overcoming these challenges is easier with the help of adaptive technologies, but also with the understanding of friends and family who know that just because a kid is dealing with blindness or visual impairment doesn't mean he isn't still a regular kid.
