Tips for helping the blind & partially sighted

Most sighted people get the wrong idea on what is proper assistance for the blind and partially sighted. Most times sighted persons usually do the wrong thing (i.e. sighted person grabbing a blind personís arm while he/she is walking with either a guide dog or cane.). This can lead to either putting one or both persons in danger or making a situation uncomfortable. Gladys E. Loebís Getting Along and Getting Around (from the handbook What...Where...When) tackles this topic and gives suggestions on what a sighted person should do if they come upon a person who is either blind or partially sighted.
