  1. Take the guide's arm and hold it gently but firmly just above the elbow, with the same grasp you would use to hold a glass of water (thumb on the outside of the guide's arm, and fingers on the other side, nearer the guide's body). This grip will allow you to receive the greatest amount of feedback from the guide's movements.
  2. The grip should be firm enough so that you don't lose contact with the guide, but not so firm that the guide is uncomfortable.
  3. If you use a cane, take the guide's arm with your free hand.
  4. Tell the guide if his or her pace is too fast for you. It's important that you walk at a pace that is comfortable for both of you.
