Biography of persons with disabilities
In this book, successful people (who happen to be blind) tell stories which illustrate coping strategies while amusing the reader. Young adults will find courage in these true sharings. Can a person who is blind really do almost anything by… using alternate techniques? What are those techniques? These eight people share a few of them. When a student teacher is faced with schoolchildren who have a sledding day planned, will a white cane be enough? Can a man without sight possibly rebuild a car's engine? When a young girl tests butch wax on her long tresses, does her hair ever return to its normal state? Whose fault is it when a person who is blind opens a taxicab door onto the side of a shiny, new SUV? These experiences delight, challenge and inform.
