DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY" ----- PURPOSE: To assist in teaching proper use and positioning of a travel cane. This aid can be used when the student is first introduced to the long cane and is learning the constant contact diagonal technique or for teaching the proper width of the arc to students learning to use a cane with a roller tip. To prepare the teacher's guide cane, affix three strips of self-adhesive rough or hook Velcro around the lower shaft near the tip and three strips around the tip. For the student's cane, attach for stripd of soft or loop Velcro just above the tip. (Using loop Velcro prevents sticking to carpeted surfaces.) While the student holds his/her cane, the instructor can connect the Velcro on the guide cane to the Velcro on the student's cane to provide demonstration and correction. MATERIALS: Six strips self-adhesive hook Velcro and four strips loop Velcro. AUTHOR: Pfotenhauer, M. TITLE: Stick with Me, Ace! (in Springboard). JOURNAL: RE:view.
