A Deaf-Blind Mom Releases a How-To Book on Interacting with People who are Blind and Visually Impaired


10/25/2015 Tampa FL

On October 25th, 2015, Tiffany Kohnen published a book titled Can You See Me Now? that promises to teach anyone who wants to learn how to interact with people who are blind and visually impaired. Kohnen wrote the book because she knows people want to develop a good relationshp with people with vision impairment. The book is available for sale in print and Kindle formats through Amazon.

There are 14 topics covered in this short book, and the topics range from how the reader can guide a blind person safely down a hazardous path to how a stranger can effectively talk to a visually impaired person. Kohnen hopes this book will open a door for discussion between people who can see and those who don't.

Kohnen is a new mom and has Ushers' Syndrome, which is a combined loss of vision and hearing. Despite her hearing and vision loss, she spent the last three months working on the book Can You See Me Now? while getting ready for the arrival of her baby who is coming any day now, and working a full-time job with an insurance company. She also blogs and manage a Facebook Page discussing topics of blindness, deafness, and deaf-blindness. You can follow her on Facebook as Deaf-Blind Lady & Life and Twitter as @DBLadyLife.
