BLINDNESS MEANS TO A CHILD
As an adult we remember the
joys and wonderment of discovery as well as the intensity of the disappointments of
childhood. Visually impaired and blind children also experience these joys and pains.
However, for thousands of b lind and visually impaired children, the ability to fully
experience childhood is hampered by the lack of adaptive technology. These visually
impaired and blind children are hindered by the emphasis placed on "What can you
see?" or "How do you do that?" rather than the emphasis on "What can
you do?" Through state of the art technology, the tapestry of choice for each blind
and visually impaired child is no longer limited.
