Over this new disrupted time we continued to be supported by the National team at BLENNZ. Our DOM programme continued with Kay Daly who zoomed with us, mentored us and inspired us from a distance. We held a successful O&M activity to the city of Invercargill, for two young men who use their canes in unknown environments.
They planned the days activities together over Zoom meetings. The older student was mentoring the younger one. Together they discovered:
- new skills
- new ways to access material as part of their planning
- new ways to access the community as they travelled (walking, by bus and car.)
They learnt about team work, planning and tricky things like, “Road crossings… it being too noisy.”
