I'm curious about the use of orientation maps by blind people. My son's O&M instructor has him spend a lot of time creating tactile maps of his school. Do others do this? Do people use this kind of map in every day life? It doesn't make a lot of sense to me--if he is familiar with the environment why does he need a map? If he's not, wouldn't exploration be a good way to learn about the building?
