The Blind Argument – Episode 7 “Accepting sight loss”

July 30, 2019

Many people naturally find it hard to talk about the loss of their vision. Each individual will accept their disability at different stages.

How much should people know about your vision impairment and does it inevitably label you, so it may preclude you from social events?

In this latest edition of The Blind Argument, Clinical Psychologist Davinia Lefroy and Youth Support Officer Ryan Honschooten talk about acceptance and disclosure of vision impairment through their own lived experiences.

They look at it from a parent’s perspective as well as an individual one and discuss whether you should mention it in situations such as applying for a job or talking to someone new over a phone.
