Red and White Canes – and persons with deafblindness

White canes are well known as a symbol of people who are blind and/or visually impaired in most countries. But the white cane only tell other people that holders have visual disability which is not enough for us with Deafblindness.

In order to attract others that holders are persons with Deafblindness, they started to put red strips or tape on the white cane as symbol for deafblindness in more and more countries.

In some countries this symbol is already recognized well, but in some ohter countries we still need to work on to get reconition by people in general public and Authories. Anyhow, the red and white canes are out there.
