From Here to There: An Illustrated Manual of Mobility Techniques.
Driscoll, Maxine; Summerford, Christine F.
The manual explains and illustrates techniques for orientation and mobility instruction for blind primary age students in the public schools. Techniques are offered for four types of skills: (1) sighted guides (traveling on stairs and through doorways, seating a blind person); (2) protective techniques (following a wall by trailing, lower and upper protective arms); (3) retrieving a dropped object (protecting the head while bending forward, circular and grid hand motions for searching); and (4) cane techniques (grips used with a cane, arm and body position for cane travel, ascending and descending stairs).
