Orientation and mobility service

Orientation and mobility Training provides services to blind, deafblind and vision-impaired students about purposeful movement and provides an understanding of the environment in an age and developmentally appropriate manner.

Students can learn a variety of skills and techniques that will assist them to find their way around independently and safety. Programmes are developed to help improve gait, posture, and a general freedom of movement with both large and fine motor skills.


Our practice is guided by:

  • Ko Taku Reo, Deaf Education New Zealand school values
  • A strong commitment to Deaf bi-lingual and bi-cultural practice
  • Valuing Deaf cultural norms
  • Provide students with an environment where they can Belong, Grow, Choose, Excel
  • Access to resources and services students need to be happy and engaged learners
  • To have opportunities to be their best and become confident leaders of their own lives
