Skill 4: Showing a Table or an Available Seat

When approaching a seat, the guide should tell the person they are guiding that they are in front of, or beside the seat.

The guide will then place their guide arm hand on the chair back or chair arm and allow the guided person to follow the guide’s arm down to the seat.

The guide does not need to help the person they are guiding to sit down, unless the person being guided is frail or unsteady.

Use the same technique when showing a person to a table.
