One of the ways society expresses its attitudes and concerns about people with special needs is in the physical structures provided for programs serving those who are in need. A concrete approach toward improving a lagging community's perception of blind persons is through insuring that the physical structures of agencies which serve them reflect fundamental respect for: their dignity as individuals; their potentials for productive participation in society; their basic needs, both those common to all men and those conditioned by their visual limitations. In the final analysis, the primary criterion for evaluating an agency's buildings and grounds is their suitability for effective service.
