New resource – how to guide a Deafblind person
DBV has produced a new resource by Heather Lawson with support from Melbourne Polytechnic. It is an 11-minute video showing how to guide a Deafblind person indoors. The following techniques are shown:
- Basic guiding
- Tables, chairs and objects
- Guiding a hand
- Walking frame
The video is presented in Auslan and has a spoken English voice-over. Next year, Part 2 will show how to guide outdoors and in the community. Enjoy and share this widely! We would love to see more people confident in guiding us.
