Abstract

The profession of Orientation & Mobility (O&M) in Australia has grown considerably in recent years. The introduction of graduate and postgraduate courses in O&M has to some extent focused on increasing services for rural areas. However, the majority of O&M specialists are still concentrated in the larger capital and regional cities around Australia. This paper will examine the challenges and opportunities a consultancy model of O&M can offer communities that are geographically isolated from the larger cities.
