Orientation and mobility (O&M) training helps people who are blind or have low vision to travel independently. 

Independent Options for Mobility provides orientation and mobility training and education for independent travel.  We are based in Melbourne, Australia.

As well as working with people who are blind or have low vision, we also work with individuals with Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI), and are experienced in administering the CVI Range assessment tool.

Travel training can also help individuals with acquired brain injury or other cognitive impairments to maintain their independence.

O&M is linked with the allied health and education sectors, and we work collaboratively with other professionals in those fields to help individuals reach their goals.

If you have NDIS funding, contact us about what services we can support you with.

Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is a community where people with disabilities travel safely, confidently, independently and with purpose throughout the environment, using whatever travel device they choose.

To bring that vision into reality, we provide high quality, collaborative and inclusive orientation and mobility (O&M) programs, and work to improve community awareness of disability, in particular low vision and blindness.

We tailor our programs to meet individual needs and budgets, and believe in working collaboratively whilst respecting the confidentiality of the individuals and organisations we work with. 

Quality Policy

We are committed to meeting all client requirements and increasing client satisfaction through the continual measurement, review and improvement of our services, and the effectiveness of our quality management system.

Our work is guided by the Orientation and Mobility Association of Australasia’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
