In honor of White Cane Day, Julie was joined by a few guests to talk with two elementary school classes about white canes and how to interact with classmates, parents, friends and community members who have vision impairments. The canes allow for safer mobility and the students learned to always include their name when they start talking to someone who uses a white cane and to never step over the cane or suddenly touch the person using it. They were reminded that they can ask if someone wants help and ended the day with stickers handed out to them by their classmates.
