Assisting children who are visually impaired: a guide in English and French

October 2017

Assisting children who are visually impaired

Guiding:

Walk half a step ahead of the child with visual impairment that you are guiding. If they are tall enough, let the child hold onto your elbow with their hand. If they are not, let a small child hold your wrist, or even a finger. If you are friends, or the child’s parents, then you can hold his hand.

Aider les enfants ayant une déficience visuelle

Technique de guide:

Marchez un pas en avant de l’enfant que vous guidez. Si l’enfant est assez grand, laissez-le prendre votre coude avec sa main. S’il ne l’est pas, laissez-le vous tenir le poignet, ou même un doigt. Si vous êtes amis, ou le parent de l’enfant, vous pouvez lui tenir la main.
