Mobility training is of crucial importance to people with vision impairments. It entails developing skills required to move around safely in the environment.
Some people with vision impairments have enough residual vision to move around independently. Others may require a mobility aid such as a long cane to enable the individual to find a safe way in front of them
Training may involve advising persons with low vision on using their residual vision to move around safely. It may also involve in-depth training on using a mobility aid such as white cane.
