  1. I am very interested, however, it sounds like the training is based on physical activity which requires sight. I don’t understand how a blind person can move around in a situation which requires visual awareness to know when and where to move. I am very interested in the conversational skills and would like to learn those. I would like to attend with my Seeing Eye Dog but just not sure what to do. Please respond to my questions and help me think through how I can participate. Thank you.

    1. Hi Audley,

      You raise some really excellent questions. You should hear from one of the instructors soon.

      Thank you.
