This educational film, produced by the Texas Education Agency in 1968, documents a summer program designed to help visually impaired high school students become independently mobile. Students enrolled in the program practiced a range of activities, from putting on a necktie to navigating the city and crossing busy streets. Students also received career and job seeking counseling, as well as guidance on the challenges faced by any typical high school student.
