Two students with autism, vision impairment and intellectual disability participated in an orientation and mobility (O&M) interventions to travel in school settings using their folding canes. A multiple baseline across participants' design to determine the effectiveness of the intervention was used. The dependent variable was time taken to travel the specified routes. The independent variable was O&M training. Results indicated that both participants took less time to travel during the intervention compared to the baseline. Students with autism and vision impairment can be trained using systematic O&M training. The O&M specialists working with children with autism and vision impairment should collect data and make data-based decisions while providing O&M instruction.
