|using cane on sidewalk|
Its not a bad thing ether its just about the balance. Thankfully Abby is getting orientation and mobility training. As with all her vision loss related instruction she fights. We show up today knowing she is there to work and really tries to push the limits. She isn't horrible she just tries to touch everything she can get her hands on and doesn't listen. One thing I have learned is to walk away. I leave her. I love watching her orientation and mobility training but she does better when I'm not there.
Abby does do well with the cane. I notice she will use it when she feels she needs it. Sometimes she NEEDS it more times then other times. Its a process and I know that its going to be another tool to help her be successful. A cane is not a sign of disability but a sign of independence.
