CANE AND COMPASS: Pointing the Way for Creative Orientation and Mobility Instruction
I am Ashley Broussard, a daughter, friend, student, future Orientation and Mobility Specialist and young adult trying to find my place in the world.
I am a graduate student at Cal State University Los Angeles in the Orientation and Mobility program, class of summer 2015. I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders and minor in Philosophy at the college in 2014.
As I have been progressing through the O&M program and began student teaching, I have quickly realized there is a shortage of resources for creative instruction. There are numerous videos and tutorials all over the web that show how to perform O&M techniques, but a lack of resources to aid specialists to teach clients/students concepts in fun, motivating, creative ways.
I was inspired to create this online space for all O&M specialists to visit and use with the hope that there can be a collective resource for creative lesson planning.
