I heard this phrase again today, and I've hear it for years now...
"You must teach students with Low Vision use their vision!
What the crap?!? Seriously.
Ok, people think about this, how do you teach someone to use their vision, it's the most ridiculous concept to me!
Did your mommy teach you to see as a baby. Nope! You just did (or didn't in my case).
But no one teaches you that, it's like teaching someone to hear, or teaching someone how to smell something, or teaching someone to fart, you just do or you don't. (Gross I know, but had to make my point).
What a freaking waste of time for Orientation and Mobility Specialists to spend so much time teaching somone to use their already completely horrible and useless vision! Boooooo!
I'm grateful everyday that I put on the blind fold and go the best training and don't have to squint my eyes all day trying to teach myself to see...that would be a way lamer existance!
That's All. Done for the Day!
