The cane debate

Hi Blog world,

I’ve noticed that many people have been talking about The cane debate, so I wanted to weigh in on this. I myself, am a white cane user, and I believe that if someone has a visual impairment, and they have gotten approval from a doctor and proper training they should be able to use their cane.

Another part of this debate is what color should the cane be. For me personally, I don’t use a cane that matches what I’m wearing, I use a long white cane. Even though, I have seen videos where people explain that they have several cane’s that match different outfits.

I have had training from an orientation and mobility teacher from my local independence living center for the blind and visually impaired. The training helped me with my confidence when traveling.

How do you feel about people using a cane to get around? Tell me in the comments below.

Blog soon,

Amanda Gene
