One-year-old toddlers with mobility visual impairment and blindness can begin wearing canes and allow them to learn to walk with confidence in their next step.

Alilah was walking prior to obtaining her first set of Safe Toddles' Toddler Canes. She is MVI and has some functional vision. she showed all the outward signs of stress when asked to cross open space without assistance.

 

After a month of wearing her cane, her pace quickened and she appeared motivated to explore the mall unprompted. Instead, her mother calls her "Miss Independent" as Alilah now likes to run in the opposite direction.

Javier was not walking prior to obtaining his first set of Safe Toddles Toddler Canes. He has a twin brother who is able to walk, run, and has energy to spare.

Javier took his first independent steps fifteen minutes after putting on his cane for the first time. His family has since sent in new videos showing his progress.
