Orientation and Mobility for Children

Alexa with her cane


This site is to assist with questions you may have regarding the use of the long white cane, the purpose of the cane, and the importance for individuals who are blind, legally blind or partially sighted to use the cane. The goal of this site is to help you assist your child in obtaining the skills necessary to travel independently where he/she wants to go, when he/she wants to go (providing permission has been granted, of course), and to travel safely. It is always wonderful to observe individuals traveling with confidence.
