Mobility training

With proper mobility training, a disabled person can navigate independently even in the busiest traffic. The key for visually challenged people is the cane, which is typically long enough for one end to reach the chest or chin while the other end rests on the ground. Other devices are crutches, wheel chairs, portable and mobile technology. Nowadays there are many new devices that help blind people walk on their own through auditory, vibration and manual help.

We are organizing mobility training for interested students to help make them independent. Having proper mobility training can help students to do anything on their own without sighted help.We teach mobility using walking canes and other devices, including GPS devices with screen readers, Braille signs and maps, tactile maps, electronic canes if suitable for conditions, crutches, robotic and manual walkers if suitable for conditions, wheel chairs and other sonic devices to help blind and other disabled students to independently solve navigation problems. We plan to use tactile road maps, Braille direction manuals, Braille compasses, mobile compasses and audio maps to orient students on the road. We also use training methods in moving vehicles like public transport. This training will be offered on a one-on-one basis if required. We plan to use Braille manuals for direction guides. We also will have audio manuals if students prefer. We provide guided assistance to teach students to be on their own.
We would like to teach students to use public transportation without any problem. We would like to establish this training program in the coming few months. Once we set everything up, we will post the information about when we plan to launch this service in our announcements section.

Once we are ready to provide training, students can come to our office to register their names. Students and parents can come to visit us to register for this training. You can find our contact information on our contact Us page. All questions should be directed to info@samanvai.org.
