Guide Dogs in the Special Education Methodology Institute in Józsefváros
We visited the students of the Unified Special Education Methodology Institute and Primary School in Józsefváros, Budapest. The children were very enthusiastic about us. Ágota Lukács talked about the everyday life of visually impaired people to the children and what her guide dog Vacak means to her. In addition, with the help of our colleague Mónika Köbli, everyone could try out what it feels like to walk with a white cane while the others created barriers with their own bodies.
Finally, with the help of Mária Nyíriné Kovács and Zorien the students could experience what it is like to walk with a guide dog.
The children could also get acquainted with Sándorné Török and her guide dog Moris and Zoltán Szíjj and his guide dog Frodo. Zorien, Vacak, Frodo, Morris and Bogi got lots of strokes and kindness from the children. We thank our volunteer Csilla Kerékgyártó for the invitation. We could spend a really cheerful and fun-filled day together.
