Just Ask

Shortly after beginning this blog, I posted a few articles on how someone who’s sighted can best interact with someone who is low-vision. Using the acronym, SALE, I discussed the steps of stopping, asking, listening, and evaluating.

Here now is an article by Ed Henkler at The Blind Guide taking a slightly different but just as doable perspective. Just Ask.

It’s so easy for someone to let words stick in their throat tarred by uncertainty when meeting someone who is blind, deaf, or paraplegic. With the social confusion created by every interest groups pet faux pas, we aren’t always sure if we’ll offend someone. Still the bold thing for someone to do when meeting one of us is Just Ask.
