Orientation & Mobility
Mobility training for blind people is an essential part of helping them live an independent and fulfilling life. There are several ways in which mobility training can be provided, and the approach taken may vary depending on the individual’s needs, abilities, and preferences. At Lions Services, we invest to ensure all blind and visually impaired employees are offered orientation and mobility training at the start of employment and during their career at the facility. This can include learning to use a cane or guide dog.
Accessibility to technology and adaptive devices to improve job performance and promote independence- have you ever wondered what it would be like to choose your clothing, read your mail, or prepare a meal if you were visually impaired or blind? There are many adaptive devices that make everyday tasks possible. Lions Services helps support the purchase of assistive devices through the Blind Support Fund to purchase hand held magnifiers, magnification glasses, talking watches, and many other devices to help with these tasks.
