Chad Bouton…Blindness Myths…Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup…The Cooking Without Looking TV Show Podcast #ChangingTheWayWeSeeBlindness

One day, Chad Bouton and his mom went to the store.  She parked in a handicapped spot, Chad grabbed ahold of her arm, and they walked into the store.  When they came out, there was a note on her car which said she should be ashamed of herself for having her son pretend to be disabled to get that parking space.

"What does a blind person look like?" Chad asked.

#ChangingTheWayWeSeeBlindness

Posted by cookingwithoutlooking in DefaultTag

When Brianna Scerenscko turned 21, her parents made good on their promise to take her to Las Vegas.  So, when her dad took her to the bar, the bartender didn't want to give her a drink because she couldn't make eye contact which to him meant that she was drunk.  When she said she would never be able to make eye contact because she was blind, he apologized profusely.

#ChangingTheWayWeSeeBlindness

Listen as Brianna describes how she works to get employment for other blind people through her work with the Florida Division of Blind Services.

Brian Bushway…RIBS! The Cooking Without Looking Podcast…#ChangingTheWayWeSeeBlindness

Everyone in Life should learn how to fall.  That's what Brian Bushway believes...especially after falling eight feet straight down a hill while riding his mountain bike...blind.

Brian lost his sight when he was 14.  His father and mother,  along with his sisters made space for Brian to lead the way, and to teach them how to be with a person who's blind.  He now teaches professional athletes how to use all of their senses to make them perform even better at Acoustic Athletics.

Brian LOVES to cook because, as he says, it gives him the chance to be perceived as the caregiver and not the care receiver.

Ben Fox…Party-Sized Pizza Dough…The Cooking Without Looking TV Show Podcast #ChangingTheWayWeSeeBlindness

Posted by cookingwithoutlooking in DefaultTag

What do you do when you're not totally blind, but are legally blind and people don't understand?  Ben Fox created Almostblind.org 

"A nice guy insisted I take his seat on a full train. I thanked him, sat down and checked a text message on my phone. The man's friend saw this and said, "Hey, he's not blind".   I went home right away and made this website and shirts and hats that say: Almost Blind.org" -Ben Fox 

More than 90% of legally blind people can still have some small or limited vision. The White Cane keeps them safe.
