Mobility Day is a one-day program that teaches school-aged children who have impaired vision to get around safely in the city.
Children taking part in the program learn appropriate travel and social skills in a completely new environment, under the close supervision of our experienced Orientation and Mobility Instructors.
What do participants learn?
Mobility Day participants gain practical experience in city travel.
We meet in the heart of the city, so they learn to travel on a range of public transport, as well as cross streets at traffic-light-controlled intersections and negotiate their way along crowded footpaths.
Sometimes the Mobility Day will incorporate travel to an exciting destination - such as the time we took a group of young clients to visit the set of television show "Home and Away" at Channel 7's Epping studio.
Mobility Day is also a great opportunity for participants to brush up on Orientation and Mobility skills, and to meet other children in their age group.
How can I join the group?
Every school-aged child who has impaired vision can attend Mobility Day. Like all our services, it's free of charge.
This is a needs-driven program that is held whenever we have sufficient numbers of participants.
