Responsibilities of Orientation and Mobility Jobs
Children who are visually impaired need assistance to travel and move safely. Orientation and mobility specialists provide children with that support, playing an integral role in helping students enhance their sensory, concept development, motor and awareness skills. Professionals in certified orientation and mobility specialist jobs typically work in a one-to-one setting with their students. For example, a specialist might help a student learn how to navigate their school and get to each one of their classes. Ultimately, empowering students with the confidence to move freely is the main responsibility of orientation and mobility specialist jobs.
Requirements for Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist Jobs
All orientation and mobility jobs require applicants to have completed a four-year bachelor’s degree program. It is not mandatory, but you can also go back to school to receive a master’s degree in the subject field. Once you have obtained your degree, the next step is receiving your certification through the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals. After receiving this certification, you can begin applying for certified orientation and mobility specialist jobs.
