All the articles on the other pages of this website are somehow related to bridge and/or chess players. Where those articles relate to a physical handicap of some form or other, detail is kept to the minimum to get the right balance. i.e. enough information to get the message across. but not so much information that it is not worth reading from beginning to end. Unless, that is, you are one of the afflicted - or know someone who is. and who needs help.
Feedback in the month since this site was set up, suggests to me that it would be a good idea to have at least one page like this. A forum where I can put information given to me by bridge and chess players. Whether it be the contact address for a self help group in their area, or a story about how bridge helped a member of their family etc.
Any player with a helpful tale to tell on any of the following disabilities / illnesses that afflict them or another player in their club or family can send me a mail at any time via the contact page.
The list of subjects already mentioned on this site in alphabetical order:
Blindness / Visually impaired
Muteness (dumb / speech impediments)
I look forward to hearing from you on these and other illnesses / handicaps not mentioned thus far. Such as the subject that is next on my agenda for treatment: Deafness.
