Cane to Canine: Is a Guide Dog Right for You?

June 13 @ 8:00 am - August 17 @ 5:00 pm PDT

CSB is excited to partner with Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) to offer an Orientation & Mobility (O&M) Immersion Program! Students will work on O&M skills important for guide dog mobility such as the use of non-tactile feedback, auditory information, and time-distance estimation for indoor and outdoor travel. They will also experience Juno (simulated guide dog) routes in preparation for a trip to GDB! Students will participate in daily hands-on activities with dogs and learn about the responsibilities of dog ownership. Get ready for a tail-wagging good week, and find out if a guide dog is right for you. Activities in this course will support developing orientation and mobility, independent living, self-determination, sensory efficiency, and social interaction skills.
