The BLENNZ DOM team continues to grow and learn together throughout 2018. The team meets 4 times a year for professional and service stream development. Recently members of the BLENNZ DOM team came together and had the chance to review the Wise Walker Kit.
This is a kit that has been developed in NZ, to the team’s specifications, with the aim of supporting learners who are blind or have low vision. The kit helps ākonga to learn concepts and strategies associated with community travel.
Members of the DOM team also presented on the BLENNZ DOM Model and philosophies at the April conference of Orientation and Mobility Association of Australasia.
The presentation was well received at the conference and the conference content and resources were shared with the BLENNZ DOM team at the team meeting.
