My inquiry question is: What are the impacts of being born blind compared to losing sight later on in life?
My first round of research will consist of researching the impacts of being born blind. I will look into the physical and the emotional impacts as this will help me see the various impacts and will help me compare it to people who lose sight later in life. For those who lose sight later in life, there will be a lot of changes for them and a lot of emotions they will probably go through from once being able to see to not being able to see the things they used to which will be a very large change compared to those who have never been able to see in the first place.
For my second round of research, I will look into the impacts of losing sight later in life and the physical and emotional impacts. This will help me look at various impacts and will be able to have more to compare with for those who are born blind.
Lastly, on my third round of research I will look into the different learning styles in both those who are born blind and for those who lose sight later in life. As well as the discriminations they are faced with for their disability (ableism). This will help as these are some of the other impacts that can answer part of my question.

Implications to other individuals/or my community:
This will have implications on people in the community as this may help others who are not blind understand how people cope with their disability, whether it is emotionally and/or physically. As well as the few different ways they learn certain things. This will also show how people take many things for granted and are not so understanding towards the disabled (handicapped).
