Dr. Oz: Blind Man Helps Kids Learn to Read
Dr. Oz talked to a special man named Jeff Balek who volunteers to help kids learn how to read. Jeff is also blind and has never seen a book.
Jeff said when the kids find out he’s blind, they ask him all kinds of questions. He said he thought they got a kick out of it. While Jeff reads in Braille, the kids read in print. If there’s a tough word, he helps them out by feeling the sentence with his fingers and helping the kids learn what the tough word is.
