"Step by Step: Systematic Cane Instruction"
Workshop Dona Sauerburger, Rebecca Sheffield, and participants
Do you want to feel more confident with
helping students move to the next stage of learning to use their cane,
assess their progress,
understand what you can expect of them at that stage, and
enhance their motivation for learning to use the cane?
If so, you'll enjoy listening to this workshop!
Moderators Dona Sauerburger and Dr. Rebecca Sheffield
encouraged participants to think about assessment and expectations for students in various stages of learning the cane; how to apply the principles of learning and motivation to their practice; and share their insights.
Afterwards, they brainstormed strategies for teaching cane skills.
