From the introduction...
The purpose of this booklet is to help you, as parents of young children who are visually impaired or blind, understand what Orientation and Mobility is and how you can influence the independence of your child. We believe that every child's independence, self confidence, and self-image affects how they learn. We believe that O&M means independence, and independence means freedom!

As we wrote this booklet we wanted you to be able to see your own child on these pages. For this reason we have done two things. We have alternated he and she by section so that both boys and girls are recognized. We have also made a conscious effort to say “child who is visually impaired” placing the value on the child and not on the disability. These are two small considerations with major significance as to how we use language to demonstrate our philosophies.
