Beyond Blind: A Guide for the Sighted

blind“What is it like to be blind? Is it the same as closing your eyes or wearing a blindfold? And if I meet a blind person, what should I do or say?”

Beyond Blind: A Guide for the Sighted is an online instructional tool that helps sighted students to gain a more nuanced understanding of people with visual disabilities.  Visitors to the site will explore several interactive multimedia challenges that address common misconceptions and stereotypes about blindness.  

By providing a safe and informative environment for students to get answers to their basic questions surrounding blindness, Beyond Blind will open up a pathway to positive future interactions between the sighted and the blind.
