Walk The Talk
“Walk the Talk”. It’s very easy for a sighted person to ask his visually impaired counterpart to use a stick for being mobile and self-independent. In this session, we tried turning the tables and giving a lesson or two to the sighted ones on the tips and tricks. This meeting touched upon the importance of mobility for a VI person and using the white cane. The objective was to help the parents make their VI child self dependant. The parents were motivated to encourage their children to make practical use of the techniques which would help them to become self dependant and move around independently. Activity: The parents were blind folded and made to walk using the white cane. They were made to realize how difficult it is to walk without sight & experience the plight of their VI family members.
