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:

  1. Basic guiding
  2. Tables, chairs and objects
  3. Guiding a hand
  4. Stairs
  5. Wheelchair
  6. 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.
