    This video is an excellent depiction of how real people with vision loss navigate a highly urbanized environment. Both of the main characters use O&M skills and a dog guide in a wide variety of scenarios. Many school students do not see this type of video in their schools. Thank you for allowing me to share this material with the appropriate audience.
