Gain support with issues related to balance, gait training, fall risk, or vertigo. Our goal is to help make everyday activities easier for you so you can remain independent in your own home.
Orientation & Mobility Training
Orientation and mobility training is geared toward allowing blind and visually impaired individuals to travel independently. This is primarily achieved through instruction in the use of a long cane, while simultaneously learning to efficiently interpret and utilize other sensory input during travel. This comprehensive training program allows the participants to regain total travel independence in their lives.
Learn how to use the assistive technology that’s best for your lifestyle. From screen-reading software and closed-circuit televisions to portable video magnifiers and smart phones, all kinds of resources and devices are available to help with communication, schoolwork, professional situations and more.
Inside our vision rehabilitation center, we’ve built a small neighborhood called Independence Boulevard. Here you’ll find a functional house, grocery store, restaurant, and walkway. Independence Boulevard is an excellent alternative to safely learn to navigate everyday situations with confidence, if training in one’s personal environment is not feasible.
