For children with low vision or blindness, like Kodi who lives in Mount Gambier, their first white cane opens up a world of possibilities.
“Kodi got his first white cane when he was three years old,” his mum, Julie, said.
“He was a bit unsure about it until his big brother dubbed the cane ‘Kodi’s magic stick’. It was the perfect name! Kodi’s cane gives him the power to do things he might not otherwise do.”
“Because Kodi was born without vision, he’s had to learn about the world differently. Now he’s ten and growing in confidence with each training session.”
“His Orientation and Mobility Instructor, Karyn, works side-by-side with Kodi to develop the skills he’ll need to be safe and independent as he makes his way through life,” Julie said.
