Blindness and Independence

The keystone of the philosophy of the National Federation of the Blind is the belief that with proper training and adequate opportunity, the difficulties presented by blindness can be reduced to the level of a nuisance.  Enjoy reading these stories about how blind people use simple, effective, common sense techniques to handle the tasks and responsibilities of everyday life. These stories are found within the pages of NFB Kernel Books, which can be viewed at www.nfb.org/kernel-books.

Blind teens learn from adult mentors.
