So, another travel related post. This time I wanted to talk about the people one meets on one’s travels, because as anyone with a disability that’s visual obviously will know, you find some interesting reactions.

For the first three posts in this series, I have focused on how people with disabilities learn to travel. For the remainder of the series I’ll be focusing on more advanced topics, mainly of interest to our disabled readers, relating to travel.
In the previous two posts, I have focused primarily on travel for visually impaired people. However, people with a wider range of needs require support to learn to get around and this is often delivered through lessons called Travel Training. So, in this post, I shall give you a brief overview of what that is.
In the last post, I told you a little bit about the basics of mobility. In this post I’ll be talking about some more advanced skills.
Mobility is the training which visually impaired and blind people receive to help them learn to travel and navigate their environments safely and independently.
