Teaching blind, preschool-age children to use a long cane in travel is a relatively new concept in orientation and mobility. This article examines this issue and discusses potential advantages of early cane use, challenging traditional arguments against early introduction of the cane. Instructional considerations and optional strategies for reaching use of the cane to preschoolers are included.
