When your vision begins to change and the thought of going out brings feelings of anxiety, it’s time to do some thinking about taking the next step. At our “Taking the First Step” workshop, you’ll hear from our panel of individuals who have taken that first step and received O&M instruction. Our panel will share what prompted them to make this important decision and how it changed their lives.

Our discussion will address:

  • fears and feelings about using a white cane,
  • feelings about traveling when you cannot see, and
  • taking instruction on this new skill.

This class is designed for individuals who are new to vision loss, are contemplating this training or are embarking on training.
