Mobility

Mobility is a cornerstone of independ-ence. For the visually impaired, mobi-lity is more than clutching a white cane. It is the honing of an internal antenna to gauge physical hurdles and work their way around them. More importantly, it is the emotional and mental confidence to be unafraid of the unseen. Before a visually impaired child can walk down a corridor across a classroom to a desk, or reach out to a cup of milk, the child must learn not to be afraid to move in his physical environment. Mobility is about familiarization and orientation of the child to move about in any space. Only after a child feels comfortable in physical space can he embark on a safe, stress-free and fearless journey.
