Nick News: Out of Sight: How Blind Kids See the World

Nick News: "Out of Sight" S1

Back in January Nick News aired the documentary Out of Sight which gives a brief look into the lives of six kids who are visually impaired. Each child eloquently explains their experiences. The documentary is brief but gives a great overview of showing how technology has allowed them to be independent, what being visually impaired means to them, their dreams and how they handle having a sight impairment in a sighted world. I think this is great for parents of children who have been recently diagnosed with Stargardt's and even adults. Often when we are first diagnosed or have to face any perceived obstacle we focus to much on what we can't do instead of focusing on what we can do.
