Vision plays an enormous role in the way we perceive, understand and move through our environment, but it is not essential to our doing so. Orientation skills are the same for travellers with vision or those who are blind or have low vision.
Without vision, the traveller must make better use of other senses and residual vision (if applicable) to remain oriented.
Essentially, orientation becomes a problem solving exercise.
This webinar unpacks the terminology around O&M and provides participants with a clear understanding in this area.
