Pupils from Welholme Academy in Grimsby and Kingston Primary School in Benfleet broached subjects many adults would avoid – including asking if blind people dream in colour.
Vlogger Siobhan Meade, who is completely blind after losing her sight at aged 16, was in the hot seat, answering everything the little ones put to her and her guide dog Marty.
Asked by one of the kids if she could dream, she said: “I do dream and I dream in colour.
“That means when I’m dreaming, I can see which is really cool.”
The young children couldn’t hold back their excitement as they asked Siobhan how she knew where her dog had been for a poo – and just how does she pick it up?
“Marty has a special pen where I can take him to go to the toilet and I have a special command I have to give for him to go to the –
“But I don’t want to say it too loud because I don’t want him to go to the toilet in here. That wouldn’t be nice, would it?” Siobhan joked.
The video comes after a survey commissioned by Guide Dogs found 32 per cent of children want to know what a person who is blind or visually impaired sees when they dream.
The study of 1,000 children aged six to 11 and their parents revealed a host of other questions kids would like to know the answer to.
These include ‘how much can you see?’ (34 per cent) and ‘how do you choose your clothes?’ (33 per cent).
Along with, ‘how do you recognise people?’ (32 per cent) and ‘do you understand what colours are?’ (30 per cent).
Despite their curiosity, 44 per cent of parents polled said their little ones have never asked them about disabilities – such as being blind or visually impaired.
