Alternate Routes demonstrates theories and best practices for adapting orientation and mobility techniques for students with additional disabilities that may affect their ability to master traditional techniques.
There are 6 modules included in this training self-paced tutorial, each containing video segments, readings, and assigned activities to enhance and apply your learning. Plan to spend 1 week working through each module, followed by a Final Quiz. While this is a self-paced course, the material will have the most impact if you work steadily through the outline in the order it is presented.
Participants will earn 10 ACVREP credits, 10 CTLE credits, or 10 PDPs by completing the activities and quizzes. All assignments are required in order to receive education credits. You may also choose to register without credits.
This is a web-based, self-guided professional development activity for Orientation & Mobility Instructors, Parents, TVIs. This tutorial covers protective, trailing, and cane techniques for ambulatory travelers. Adapations to canes, and other adapted devices are not addressed.
All sales on self-paced courses are final.
Here is what participants had to say about this course:
"The most valuable aspect is realizing that other specialists have had the same challenges with students who are not able to use "perfect" techniques and there are alternative techniques we can try for these situations."
"I loved the stair technique and cane technique units- I felt like they were most relevant to my current caseload "
"I learned so much from this class. I love being able to do a class on my own time and schedule and without traveling to Denver. I especially like that I can choose the areas that I need professional development in. I used this class as part of my professional development goal for my yearly evaluation."
