transcript Let's Walk Together - Human Guide Video (YouTube)

Produced in 2013, Emerson College, the Carroll Center for the Blind, Shriver Clinical Services Corporation, Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and MCB partnered to create the video demonstrating use of the Human Guide technique (also known as Sighted Guide) by adults who have intellectual disability and vision loss. Throughout the 23 minute video, use of the Human Guide technique is demonstrated in everyday situations including: doorways, narrow spaces, and crowded areas; stairs; steps and ramps; uneven surfaces; seating at a table and a couch; getting into and out of a car and van. This video also addresses the unique needs of individuals with vision loss who use walkers or gait belts.
