We have been asked to circulate the following:
Hello! My name is Bobby Dixon and I am a legally blind graduate
student at Southeastern Louisiana University as well as a member of
the National Federation of the blind. I have been legally blind all
of my life due to an exceptionally small optic nerve. I have lived
for 45 years with this condition and have quite a bit of experience
involving how we are treated by society in education, employment, as
well as everyday life. These experiences inspired me to study others
to see if they too have had similar familiarity with these situations
and to find out if the way society treats other legally blind people
may be affecting our self confidence and well-being and to promote
The participants in this study will be contributing to a larger body
of knowledge and awareness of what legally blind people are truly
capable of. The data gathered in this study will not only be used to
help legally blind people reach their true potential, it will also be
used to help sighted people realize that legally blind people are
just as capable as they are.
NOTE: 1) Only people aged 18 and older may participate in this study.
2) legal blindness covers all people with a visual acuity of 20/200
to those who are totally blind.
This survey is designed to measure how legally blind people feel they
are treated by society. Furthermore, the study also examines how
legally blind people feel about themselves and the beliefs of legally
blind people about the way others feel about them.
The survey can be found at:
