Blindness: for sighted beginners

Peter White and guests give practical advice about helping a blind person. Should you open doors or count steps? And how should you guide?

In response to a recent programme discussion on how blind people should accept and then dispense with help, sighted listeners contacted In Touch asking for information on the best techniques and tips when giving help. Should you open doors or count steps? And how should you guide?
Amie Slavin, blind since the age of 23, and Julie Smethurst give their views on the best ways sighted people can offer help, and some practical do's and don'ts.

Presenter: Peter White
Producer: Lee Kumutat.
