The training “Mobility and Orientation for the blind and partially sighted with multiple
disorder children" was held for the
teachers of Terjola №1 Public School within the framework of the Inclusive Education Support
Program of the National Center for Teacher Professional Development. The
purpose of the training was to support the effective teaching and social
engagement of Anano Butskhrikidze, the blind student enrolled in the 5th
grade of the school.
With the help of teachers trained within the same program, Anano is
learning the Braille's font. In order to improve the skills needed for her
independent life, she receives an individual instruction on mobility and
orientation through which she can independently perform daily actions and learn
how to perceive the world with the help of the white walking stick.
TPDC has been implementing mobility-orientation trainings since 2015.
Within the framework of the program, mobility-orientation instructors have been
trained who are currently attending the practical training module. The training
module includes individual instruction for blind and partially sighted persons. In addition, the training
is provided for the teachers who teach blind and partially
sighted pupils and students with special needs.
