posted by admin on February 19, 2013

Be able to travel to and around the job site safely and independently is the first requirement for many visually impaired consumers to maintain their jobs.  The ACVREP certified orientation and mobility specialist at Ohio Job Connection can conduct job site O&M assessment, understand consumer’s travel skills and travel needs and develop a training plan to help them travel safely and independently.  The O&M service can be provided for the consumers in their home environment and neighborhood.  The consumers may use long cane, guide dog, electronic travel devices or GPS.
