For the mobility teacher, classroom teacher, or parent—

Modular Instruction authors Doris M. Willoughby (left) and Sharon L. MontheiWilloughby and Monthei’s newest practical guide offers over a thousand creative suggestions for teaching cane travel to preschool-12 students in every possible setting. Together, the authors have over 50 years of teaching experience. One is sighted, the other is blind. Their modules cover the standard topics of home, school, community, and the usual inclement weather problems (wind, fog, ice, rain, etc.), but then they go beyond these into additional places and skills—the top of the fridge, under the porch, storm gratings, the cafeteria lunch tray, carrying loads on the stairs, crossings with school patrol guards, techniques for shopping—with many tips for safety and notes on “increasing independence as appropriate for age.”

Modular Instruction for Independent Travel for Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired: Preschool Through High School

Module 17

Example 4. Attic with unfinished floor...Poke your head in there: Even when it is unwise to actually enter an unfinished attic...he can climb up the ladder...poke his head and upper body into the attic area and get the smell and “feel” of the attic. He can touch the flooring and understand why it is unsafe to walk on.

Follow-up: Exploring unfinished areas in regular buildings helps build flexibility for exploring caves, ancient ruins, etc., as in the Module, “The Great Outdoors.”
