When to help a blind person?

Here’s a great video from Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison answering the question, when do you help a blind person in public?

It all comes down to:

  1. Take a moment to observe the situation.
  2. Does the blind person need help?
  3. Offer to help. Do not just grab ahold of the blind person.
  4. If you are helping the blind person, they may hold on to your elbow as you walk slightly in front of them (this helps them feel you go up and down stairs, ramps, curbs, etc).
