Abstract
Mastering the Environment through Audition, Kinesthesia and Cognition: An O&M Approach to Guide Dog Travel , focuses on a visually impaired traveler’s ability to process auditory input in independent travel, especially while preparing to work with a guide dog. It provides clear, well-paced and thorough explanations of critical auditory, kinesthetic, distance estimation, and static and dynamic alignment skills needed for safe and efficient travel. The video features demonstrations in a variety of settings and helpful graphics. It is an essential teaching tool for any agency or program that provides O&M instruction, certification or degree programs. The DVD was produced by Institut Nazareth & Louis Braille and written by Hélène Guérette and Carole Zabihaylo. It includes fully accessible menus. Both English and French translations are included on the same DVD.
