OMSA Mobility Monday: A third approach for O&M instruction

The Third Way?
Not Center Based.
Not Itinerant.
Guide dog schools lead the way with short-term, intensive O&M programs.

Does this model of intensive but short training periods have a role to play in expanding quality O&M services? Is there any research on the subject?

Could it become a national service delivery model?
If so, for whom by whom, hmm?

Find out more!
