Description of Teaching Orientation and Mobility to Students with Cognitive Impairments and Vision Loss

Chapter 19 describes six classifications of cognitive impairments that sometimes occur in children who are also blind or visually impaired that can have a significant impact on the orientation and mobility of the students who experience them. It also describes 10 general program strategies (teamwork, communication, planning and record keeping, time considerations, task analysis, sequenced instruction, environment, motivation, prompting, and choice making) that can be helpful in addressing 10 skill areas (attention, sensory integration, behavior, memory, concept development, generalization, problem solving, social skills, orientation, and mobility) for students who have both visual and cognitive impairments.
