Orientation & Mobility


Teaches systematic techniques to students who are visually impaired or blind to enable them to better orient themselves to their environments and empower them to move about more independently. This area of the expanded core curriculum (ECC) focuses on two broad interrelated components: orientation (knowing one’s position in relation to their environment and keeping track of their relation/position while moving through the environment) and mobility (movement from one place to another). Services are provided by O&M instructors (O&Ms) who are trained to work with students with visual impairments, including those with additional coexisting disabilities.
