VIDBE-Q Volume 66 Issue 1 As I write this piece on October 26, TSBVI is soon to release Finding Wheels: Strategies to Build Independent Travel Skills for Those with Visual Impairments. Written for the traveler going into the third decade of the 21 st century, this book contains a wealth of information including scenarios of 5 travelers and 16 activities. Throughout the book are notes for families and professionals. Finding Wheels can be used independently by travelers, by a professional with individual or small groups of travelers, by families exploring nondriving and/or low vision driving together, or in other ways that TVIs, O&M specialists, or rehab professionals find that work for their travelers. Travelers may not wish to explore each of the 10 chapters or may choose what order they explore them in. During my pre-conference workshop, I will walk participants through the 10 chapters of Finding Wheels giving examples of how this resource can be used with a wide audience of travelers on their transportation journey. Photos and video clips will be used to illustrate key points. Time for questions and answers will be provided along with some "hands-on" activities. I am confident, no matter your professional role, you'll come away with some ideas of ways you can assist your travelers in finding their own wheels!
