How to Use a Long White Cane -Tutorials

Thank you for visiting this page! This page is designed to be a resource to review different white cane/long cane techniques. This page is not meant to be a replacement for Orientation and Mobility training. Rather, my goal is to provide an easily accessible resource to review different cane techniques both with written instructions and video demonstrations. This project is still in it’s beginning stages and will be continually updated with new information. You can click on the different titles below to get more information on each skill. Please feel free to leave any feedback or concerns you may have.
