The policy statement by the American Foundation for the Blind deals with nature trails, braille trails, foot paths, fragrance gardens, and touch museums for the blind. It is stated that the foundation approves of services such as provision of tape recorded guides and planting of fragrant shrubs which would benefit all users while recognizing special needs of blind or visually impaired persons. Additionally, it is stated that the foundation disapproves of any activities such as special trails for the blind which perpetuate misconceptions and stereotyped thinking and tend to set blind people apart from the rest of the community.
