Event description

Description

The course gives an introduction to the techniques used for safely guiding people who are blind or partially sighted. Safe techniques will be taught on how to safely guide someone who is blind or partially sighted. Attendees will then pair up and guide each other. Blindfolds will be provided for use during the training. Approximately one third of the course will be outdoors. Attendees will leave the course with a clearer understanding of the emotional consequences of sight loss and some of the everyday challenges faced by people with a visual impairment.
