More Than Just an Elbow

The More than Just an Elbow workshop is focused on making travel with a guide easier, safer and more enjoyable. This two-hour program for couples, the person with vision loss and their intended guide, teaches simple techniques for traveling together. Partners will learn about:

  • communicating with your partner about the environment,
  • using body cues for stopping and starting,
  • handling obstacles like curbs, stairs, doors and narrow passageways smoothly, and
  • switching sides or changing directions.

This is an active class which involves lots of walking and moving around indoors. The tasks involved require a partner. For more information or to register contact Polly Abbott at Second Sense.
