Mobility Trainers

Slide4When I first moved into my apartment near the University of Florida, simply leaving and returning home was difficult due to the extremely complicated setup of the complex. I remember feeling trapped, not even knowing where the bus stop was located. Fortunately, I was provided a phenomenal ability trainer who accompanied me through my first day of school. She took me to my first class, stayed with me and showed me where my different classrooms were located, and took the time to drive me around the normal bus routes.  She showed me every bus stop around my complex and showed me that I lived across from a shopping center.

If you think this could be of use to you, don’t hesitate to get the help. If your school does not connect with you a mobility trainer, you can follow this link to a directory of orientation and mobility services by state: http://www.visionaware.org/directory.aspx?action=results
