This booklet examines what Orientation and Mobility (O&M) is and how it can influence the independence of a child with visual impairment or blindness. The booklet is divided into four sections--Reaching, Crawling, Walking, and Cane Use. In each section, terminology used by O&M specialists is explained, including senses,environment,travel, and space, and related to the child's developmental stage. The section on reaching notes the importance of stimulating the baby's interest in the toys and people in his or her environment. The section on crawling emphasizes the baby's use of all senses as he or she travels through the house exploring new environments and stresses the importance of encouraging the baby to do some things independently. The section on walking describes the developmental stages of the baby pulling himself up on furniture and cruising along walls and comments on the importance of arranging home furnishings for child safety. The section on cane use discusses pre-cane mobility devices such as push-toys and procedures for learning to use a white cane. Numerous black and white photographs illustrate the text. (JDD)
