LITERATURE REVIEW

KIDS WITH CANES

The Nebraska Rehabilitation Services for the Visually Impaired, with the assistance of the University of Nebraska, has produced a videotape showing young children learning cane travel. The tape which is entitled "Kids With Canes," is both instructive and enjoyable to watch. Just over 30 minutes in length, it shows youngsters of approximately ages five to ten in situations such as the following: the very first cane travel lesson, walking in a residential area, crossing a downtown intersection, finding a room in a school building and finding playground equipment in a park. The comments of several parents are recorded as part of the sound track.

"Kids With Canes" is highly suitable for viewing by parents, teachers, students and anyone else interested in the education and independence of blind children.

The N.F.B. Committee on Parental Concerns has been given permission by the Nebraska Rehabilitation Services for the Visually Impaired to make "Kids With Canes" available on an at-cost basis. To order you may use the following form.
