Working with the partially sighted, is that there really is no difference between any of us who really have important thoughts to share. There are always ways. Here is the guy I used to work with:

Quote

Dr. Samuel M. Genensky, founding president of CCLVI, died on June 26, 2009 at age 81. Dr. Genensky was a Rand Corporation mathematician and inventor of the closed circuit TV. In 1978 he founded the Center for the Partially Sighted, the first full service agency of its kind, based in Los Angeles. American Foundation for the Blind president Carl Augusto said, "Sam was responsible for really bringing low vision into the mainstream." Sam Genensky cared enough about people with low vision that he put energy into founding CCLVI.

Sam Genensky strongly believed in the importance of using whatever vision he had. His eyes were burned shortly after birth when, by accident, the wrong eye drops to guard against infection were administered to his eyes. No sight remained in his left eye and he had only 20/1000 vision in his right eye.

Sam worked hard and he was exceptionally bright. He completed the first eight years of school in seven years. Then he was sent to the Perkins Institute for the Blind in Watertown Massachusetts where he refused to use braille even though he knew it. He preferred to use what little sight he had, even if it meant holding a book up to his nose.

Sam himself challenged all stereotypes of visual impairment. In fact, it became clear that it was the rest of us who were impaired. You could have been Sam's prize pupil!
