Shaun Gets A Mobility Lesson

Android 15 Talkback Updates

In this episode of Double Tap, Steven and Shaun discuss Shaun’s lack of orientation and mobility (O&M) training and they chat with Aoife Buckley from Vision Ireland who is a specialist in this field.
They explore the importance of O&M training, the challenges of accepting the need for training, and the impact of gradual sight loss on one’s ability to navigate.
Aoife explains the role of O&M training in teaching orientation skills, mobility techniques, and using non-visual cues for navigation.
Steven and Shaun also touch on the availability of O&M training, the benefits of refresher courses, and the misconceptions around using mobility aids.
The conversation delves into the complexities of self-acceptance, the vulnerability some may feel when using a cane, and the importance of confidence and posture in navigating safely.
