Hi Emmie and Miso,
Miso, I'm impressed that your Disability Services helped initiate OANDM training.
My vocational rehabilitation counselor approved for me to work with my instructor from high school to orient around campus. She worked with me for 3 days before and 7 days after I first came to campus, for about 2 to 3 hours. Now that I am more used to campus this year, I will probably not be needing these services.

>> Hi Emanuel thanks for your message. Congratulations on your transition to college. I did not live on campus while I was in college. However I was able to get oriented to the campus before classes began. My Vr agency did hire an Orientation And Mobility instructor for me.

Did your state agency hire an O&M instructor? I'm meeting with my VR counselor soon to talk about the transition to college, but I was curious to know what you've experienced.
