Orientation and Mobility

“Orientation” refers to the ability to know where you are and where you want to go while “mobility” refers to the ability to move safely, efficiently, and effectively from one place to another.  At CSDB, Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialists teach independent travel skills geared toward each student’s individual needs.  This can involve, concept development, spatial awareness, cane travel, use of residual vision and other senses, navigating residential, small business, and downtown environments and accessing and using public transit.
