Humanizing Blindness through Public Education.
Augusto, C. R.; McGraw, J. M.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v84 n8 p397-400 Oct 1990
Public attitudes toward blindness are shaped by limited contacts with visually impaired people and unrealistic portrayals of blind people in the media. Proactive efforts including national and local public education programs are needed to change stereotyped thinking, humanize blindness, and lead to greater opportunities for fuller participation in society.
