The white cane may appear to be simply a long white stick that people use to find their way, but it is much more than that. The white cane is a symbol and tool of independence for people who are blind and visually impaired.

Join us in our 5 part series where we will cover several different topics including the history of the white cane, how a white cane is used, the different types of white canes, the stigma surrounding a white cane, and the importance of O&M training to learn how to use a white cane properly.

This brief video introduction explains some more details about what the videos will cover. Enjoy!
