Each section contains a brief introduction and definitions of specific skills to be developed; checklists in chart form suitable for individual needs assessmnt and posttesting; and suggested activities, games, materials, and references. Noted are low vision and mobility aids kits and an orientation and mobility slide-tape presentation that are obtainable from the Instructional Materials Center of the Illinois Office of Education. The section on pre-cane skills features a script of the slide-tape presentation and illustrations of basic skills to be taught. Also included in the guide are a glossary, a bibliography of 56 references, and extra copies of the needs assessment charts. (LH)
