Orientation and Mobility (O&M) specialists are a vital bridge between people with visual impairments and the vast array of assistive technologies available to the community. O&M specialists typically work with students directly to teach people who are blind and visually impaired the specific skills they need in order to know where they are and how to move freely, safely, and efficiently to where they want to be.
O&M specialists are constantly searching for new ways to help their students navigate the world with more confidence and safety, and Lazarillo wants to provide the resources that they need to seamlessly integrate the instruction of our technology to their students without the hassle of trying to learn the technology on their own.
That’s why we are offering FREE workshops to O&M specialists that are interested in learning more about what Lazarillo has to offer! We will teach the use of our app’s mobility features, like its geolocation and navigation services, as well as other important skills, such as navigating the apps interface, creating custom routes, using the news feature, and much more! We’ll also hold a Q&A after the workshop in order to ensure that every question is answered and that specialists are able to thoroughly teach the use of our technology to their students.
Our #1 goal at Lazarillo is to provide as many solutions to the community of people who are blind or visually impaired as possible. We know the importance of O&M specialists to the community, and we want to provide every resource available to make their jobs easier and introduce their students to the possibilities of our technology.
