  1. Awesome. Our OT who works for the CNIB suggested we wait to get Skyler a cane (if he needs one, we're not sure yet that he will) since right now he will most likely just use it as a toy or worse yet a weapon. She says it's a better idea to let him get a feel for the world using just his senses, because the world feels different through a cane than it does through fingertips. :) Just thought I'd share what I've learned. Thanks for the links!
