This is a link to an article in the Buffalo Bulletin about a recent graduate with a degree in Orientation and Mobility (O&M): http://www.buffalobulletin.com/news/article_bcf3c822-10b5-11e3-a35c-0019bb30f31a.html. O&M instructors work with clients who have a vision impairment to teach independent travel skills. This may or may not include the use of a white cane, the logistics of local public transit, or the layout of the local grocery store. Much of the article is about why this new grad chose the profession and her degree.
