Orientation and Mobility Training

Published on: January 2, 2023

Orientation and Mobility is a profession-specific to blindness and low vision that teaches safe, efficient, and effective travel skills to blind and visually impaired people. This refers to the ability to know where they are and where they want to go, whether you’re moving from one room to another or walking city or village area for different work. “Mobility” refers to the ability to move safely, efficiently, and effectively from one place to another, such as being able to walk without tripping or falling, cross streets, and use public transportation.

With the aim of reducing the dependency of visually impaired women, Prayatna Nepal has organized 4 days of training on orientation and mobility for 9 visually impaired women on 28th  December to 31st December 2022. Four days of training basically focused on Sensory development using their senses in combination with self-protective techniques and sighted guide techniques to move safely through indoor and outdoor environments.

  •  Using a white cane to walk safely and efficiently.
  • Finding destinations with strategies that include following directions and using landmarks and compass directions.
  • Techniques for crossing streets, such as analyzing and identifying intersections and traffic patterns.
  • Problem-solving skills to determine what to do if they are disoriented or lost or need to change their route.

As a result of this program, participants were able to know the proper technique of using a white cane, sighted guide technique, and other essential techniques.
