Try this classic handicap awareness exercises to help family members start to understand the challenges of living with a handicap:
- Set up some chairs in random spots throughout the room. Blindfold someone and have them try to make their way from one side of the room to the other. Have a family member try it on one foot.
- Have a family member try to write something while blindfolded.
- Have one family member cover his ears while others talk softly. See if he can figure out what they're talking about by reading lips.
