Let's Walk Together

This collaborative video with DDS shows how human guide, also known as sighted guide, can be used by individuals with visual impairment, legal blindness, or deafblindness in a variety of everyday situations including walking through doorways, on stairs, and safely getting into or out of a car and van.  This video also addresses the unique needs of individuals with vision loss who use walkers or gait belts.
