Congenitally Blind Counselor, Adventitiously Blind Client.
Roberts, A. H.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v88 n3 p1,3-4 May-Jun 1994
A counselor blind from birth describes personal difficulties in fully understanding the experience of clients who are adventitiously blind. Congenitally blind counselors are urged to recognize that adaptive methods cannot compensate for the panoramic view of the environment provided by vision and that recently blinded individuals need to deal with their loss before fully accepting adaptive methods.
