Desirée Gallimore's well-structured lockstep 'bible' on travel-training will go a long way to alleviating the valid concerns and fears that plague families and carers when considering independent travel for people with a disability. She skilfully debunks many of the myths associated with independent travel whilst stressing the fact that it is a life changing/door opening event for people of all ages. This is an important and highly recommended book for all concerned with maximising the independence of every person with a disability.

This book is must-read for everyone who provides travel instruction! An expert instructor describes the specialized teaching strategies and sequence of instruction she has used for decades. The case studies show how the crucial elements of an effective training program yield success. I recommend this invaluable resource to all of my colleagues.
