Tips

  • You need to remember useful landmarks. When choosing landmarks, don’t use an object that might move, like a car. It might not be there next time you walk that way!
  • You need to choose landmarks that will always be there, and are easy to see, like a bank.
  • Don’t choose an object that there are lots of, and they all look the same, like a bus stop. For example, if you noticed that there was a bus stop on your way to the dentist, and then you realised that there are lots of bus stops, you won’t know which one to use to help you find your way next time you need to go to the dentist.
  • You need to remember each part of the route in the right order.
  • To help you, you could make a note of the route on a piece of paper using words or photos.

  • If you know how to read a map, you could use a map to help you to find your way.

  • When you can’t find you way, don’t get worried. You need to stay calm. If you are lost, you can ask someone to help you (the server in a shop, for example).
