BlParent -- Blind Parents Mailing List


About BlParent
English (USA)

The purpose of this list is to create a forum for blind parents
to share their experiences. Topics may include but are not limited to solving logistical
problems (such as how to manage a couple of wiggly toddlers at a shopping
mall when you need one hand for your cane an the other to carry
packages), emotional issues such as dealing with the public, handling
a child's embarrassment about blindness, etc. Parents are also encouraged to
share resources, such as arranging the exchange of print/Braille books.
There will also be occasional posts concerning topics of interest to blind
persons and/or members of the National Federation of the Blind.

This list is co-moderated by Lisamaria Martinez and Steve Jacobson. They will handle questions and
problems concerning the content of the list. You can reach them respectively at:

If you have technical problems, please contact David Andrews at:
