There are two sides to many stories. That’s especially when it comes to giving voice to doing blindness. In this first installment of “Telling It Like It Is,” I’ll let Family Connect’s Shannon Currollo discuss things that we who are blind want folks who aren’t to know about referring to us as everyday people. The article’s from 2017, but like many things written on Family Connect’s website, it’s by no means dated. After all, we all make unintended mistakes when referring to each other’s abilities, independence, or terms when speaking about having a disability like blindness.
Shannon is a regular blogger for Family Connect and a Teacher of The Visually Impaired (TVI).
