About Me

CANE AND COMPASS:

Pointing the Way for Creative Orientation and Mobility Instruction

pocketweb

I am Ashley Broussard, a daughter, friend, and best of all, an Orientation and Mobility Specialist.

I am a graduate of the CSULA 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 progressed through the O&M program and began student teaching, I 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 design 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.
