Good afternoon everyone,

This sounds like a situation easily fixed by the use of a white cane. 
Perhaps some cane travel instruction is in order. Hope this helps.

Hi all! I need your help, input, suggestions. Adison is 5 and has low 
vision. She attends a parachoial school for kindergarten. There is no 
playground/equipment. The kids play outside in the parking lot. Everyday 
Adison has gotten hurt and ended up in the nurse's office...skinned knees, 
elbows, bumped head etc.  She has gotten hurt even when I've gone in to help 
with lunch duty.  We thought about asking the school to paint an area where 
she must remain, and other peers can join her. I don't want to restrict or 
limit her, but I'm concerned about safety. I'm worried the alternative would 
be 'sit here and play with chalk'.
