International World Cane Day

Have you ever wondered what is the difference between a long cane and the average walking stick?
Today is #InternationalLongCaneDay, a day dedicated to the long cane, a tool that is so much more than just a walking stick!
Long canes enable people who are blind or visually impaired to navigate their way independently. Therefore, the importance of long canes cannot be stressed enough!

Chantelle, NCBI’s long cane trainer, tells us a little more about the different long canes and what makes them so fundamental to the lives of those living with sight loss!
