Start by asking yourself these questions:
Whether you have had training before or not, if you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, Orientation and Mobility (O&M) training may be beneficial for you.
Your next step should be to talk with a professional. A Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) is the professional trained to provide O&M instruction.
At Second Sense, you work with our mobility instructor to set your training goals and cover as much or as little as you need. So, if you just want to learn how to safely and independently walk to your mailbox, that will be your training goal. But, we will work with you and encourage you to reach for as many goals as you can. You may be surprised by what you can accomplish!
If you are interested in O&M training, please email Kathy Austin at Second Sense or call 312-236-8569.
