STAIRWAYS

SINGLE OR

MULTI-STEP


Purpose
PURPOSE

To enable the student and the guide to

safely and efficiently negotiate

stairways.


The guide approaches the edge of the steps perpendicularly.

*This positions the student one half step from and squarely aligned with the edge of the first step, and assists him in maintaining orientation. This also ensures that the guide reaches the stairs before the student.


The guide pauses at the edge of the first

step.

*This indicates the presence of a stairway. This also allows student to come up alongside the guide.


The student aligns himself evenly beside the guide.

*This exacts the student’s position relative to the first step.


The guide takes the first step.

*This increases safety and indicates the vertical direction of the stairs to the student through a nonverbal cue.


The student follows at the guide’s pace, remaining one step behind.

*An even pace and an equal distance insure accurate feedback and safety.


The guide pauses after completing the stairs. The guide and student resume a normal pace.

*Pausing after completing the stairs indicates that there is one step remaining for the student. Resuming normal pace is done for safety and naturalness, and to avoid congestion at the landing.

The End and student resume a normal pace.
