Description of “The O&M in My Life”: Perceptions of People Who Are Blind and Their Parents



Abstract: This study explored the effects of orientation and mobility (O&M) training and O&M instructors on the lives of 15 participants in New Zealand. The participants thought that O&M was essential and a professional domain and that their instructors were both effective and ineffective. They also thought that the white cane and dependence are stigmatizing and that restrictions on movement and the lack of O&M instruction are disabling.
