Mobility Devices

Mobility Devices

Three people using a wheelchair, crutches, and a wheelchair

What is it?

Canes, walkers, wheelchairs, or other devices used to aid in mobility.

Where is it found?

With individual students.

How do I use it?

Make space for a student to move freely using their mobility device—clear chairs out of the way, make sure there’s a ramp up to a stage, etc. Do not touch someone’s mobility device without permission: It is an extension of their body and should be treated as such.
