Ideally, students should be independent travellers around the school environment once they received orientation.
Much of their O&M instruction will take place in the community with a focus on further developing independence skills in complex environments – these skills must be taught by an O&M specialist.
This webinar explains how O&M skills and techniques are expanded into more complex environments for secondary school age students and young adults.
Duration of this webinar: 21 minutes
