Materials for Blind Parents
The following materials about being a blind parent were produced by the National Federation of the Blind. These articles are reprints from the Braille Monitor, our monthly publication. They were assembled and distributed as an audio cassette publication, starting probably sometime in the early 1990s for the benefit of blind parents. We believe that this collection still has value for blind parents and, therefore, have made it available online.
