Good point, Lori.  I plan to look up the Oregon White Cane law –most states
usually say “white cane” or “cane with a red tip.”  We’ll adjust as we need
to!  And, phooey about local instruction – they’re missing the boat on
creating maximum independence for our youngsters!

The only this I would change is the education about the long white cane

Jazzy doesn’t use a long cane, hers is foldable and not long. It seems that
her O&M teachers did not learn this method
 none of the kids in our area use
the long white cane, that I am aware of.

 

Sally, you were correct. The Coffee Culture is on the corner of Beca &
Kings!
