Exactly, the blindfold does not give anyone the experience of being Blind, for the reason you mentioned.

The school that requires all students to wear a blind fold does this so everyone is on a level playing field. True instructors can do wear a blind fold, but they can take it off at the end of the day. Apparently at one school, a trainer took the blind fold off right away because she panicked. Must be nice to get your sight back and have that ability. Grin.

Yes, AT instructors have to spend a week or two blindfolded so they can empathize and understand what it is really like. without doing this they aren't able to really understand what it is like for us.
