Student O & M Practitioner Isaac Mashiane is currently teaching long cane skills to a client in Tembisa. Isaac is working in the community as part of his training and is being supervised by a facilitator from the College. The client is learning a route from his home to the shops, so that he can walk there independently. The edge of the pavement is being used as a guide and he uses the touch and slide technique with the cane. This client had not used a cane before Isaac started teaching him.
