Right on Mike. But also, four year old sighted kids are doing technology and
are able to likely run the dvd player, the remote on the tv, the radio or cd
player, dial 911 and play games at least on the computer or Wii. So the
answers are how can she do the same things...what if any access does the
child require, she can learn button placement and keyboard layout and number
pad display layouts...non-visual techniques or touch technique. Maybe one of
the free screenreaders to start exploring? 

You can also recommend our Saturday school to her, every third Saturday of
the month 10am to noon at our center. One this Saturday. We have a couple of
kindergarteners and there will be a separate parent class this time, she can
meet other parents and start to get to know some blind adults and other
blind children.

Email me private Dave if you have questions or want to give her my phone or
cell# or if u already have it, pass it on.
