If you are curious as to what a career in teaching Orientation and Mobility consists of, Moved by the Spirit: A Call to Work With People Living With Blindness and Viusual Impairments is a great resource! But not only to career-oriented people, it’s helpful for family members and those with vision-impairments who are considering O&M because of their own vision loss. It showcases not only the many facets of this career but also ample does of humor, optimism and a reminder to tune into your own spirituality as well.
Who knows where it will take you, sighted or vision-impaired?
My favorite chapter of the book was right up front, Chapter 2, where she describes learning how to be an Orientation and Mobility Specialist by attending classes blindfolded. Orientation and Mobility instructors teach their clients how to navigate life without sight, whether it be crossing busy streets, using the bus system, or simply picking up the mail. I am sight impaired, and I understood firsthand the frustration and fear of getting from point A to point B. Her terror at walking blindly around campus with only a white cane to guide her gave her insight into her clients yet to come.
But Moved by the Spirit is much more than a memoir. The Inquiring Minds Want to Know section answers many questions about how much education is needed to enter the field of Orientation and Mobility, what school subjects help prepare for such a career, and where to find more information. Moved by the Spirit is an excellent book for young people looking to embark upon a fulfilling career. Or for people who want a career change.
I bought my copy at a book signing which took place at the Broward Lighthouse, and I can attest that the author is just as charming as her book.
was very pleased to be able to gift this book to others in our family to act as an information source and handbook as we deal regularly with one who is blind.
It was also a great gift for a personal trainer friend who is coaching a blind individual. As a challenge to raise your own awareness, try doing an exercise or yoga class with your eyes closed, even for a portion of an exercise ... all kinds of issues (balance, directions, etc) become apparent and it's a heads up for us all! ... as well as a call to be grateful for our site.
I would highly recommend everyone to read this book to become more educated on the challenges facing those who are blind and to raise our own awareness on how we can be more empathetically helpful when we encounter situations including one who is blind.
