Blindness awareness

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ

Description

Activities to highlight issues faced by visually impaired people

Resources

Blindfold goggles (much better than tying scarves round heads)

Instructions

Run the activities in the uploaded files (source POL)

Addition - blindfold all the troop. Tell the troop they must leave the blindfolds on no matter what happens. Have them make their way from one end of hall to the other and back again. At random point, run a fire drill.
Some will try and use the main entrance as fire escape. Turn them away on basis that this is where the fire is.
Discuss reactions and ask how they would cope if they were blind and in an unfamiliar place.
