    blind issue

    Advertisements
    whenever we go out somewhere with bree we find that people try to get her attention and make faces at her and then get flustered when she does not respond. the problem is that bree is blind and i feel bad when i have to tell them she is and then feel bad because they seem embarrassed or sad.

    how is a good way to let people know that she is blind before they get flustered over it?

    i mean i am not angry i just feel bad and was actually thinking about finding some shades her something for her and well i just really could use some suggestions if any of you have some .
    I feel the need to be petted too!

    I don't know honestly

    Maybe say she's blind but her name is Bree and she loves x sound?

    You are one smart lady! I think this is a fantastic idea. It gives them a different way to interact.

    This, only I'd say her name first, then that she's blind, that way it doesn't sound as if the blindness is more defining of her than who she is (for when she gets older/used to hearing phrases like this)

    that way she still gets interaction from other people oohing and awing over her but in the form she can use.

    I like that! I would put her name first too, same reason. That way it doesn't define her, but explains why she appears to "ignore" them.
