People with learning disabilities are in a similar boat as those with low vision. A white cane provides an opportunity to promote disability awareness as well as being useful for navigation. There should be a variation of a white cane that assists and provides the opportunity to start the disability awareness conversation to people with learning disabilities...

...and to hit people with.

       If there's one thing that I've learned here at the halfbakery, it's that unless you provide the specifics of the idea then it verges on a "let's all".   

       The white cane with the red tip is already taken, and the cane serves the purpose of helping the user sense the terrain.   

       Why would somebody with a learning disability want to carry a cane ?

       To hit people with.

       is it to hit people with learning disabilities, with ?
FlyingToaster, Mar 02 2016
  

       no for people with learning disabilities to hit people with no learning disabilities with .

       It’d be better if they carried an assistive dog with the appropriate coloured jacket. To hit people with.

       ... or bite them.   

       Maybe big heavy sticks, and big angry bitey dogs ...   

       And guns. Lots of guns.

       When did all mental disabilities become learning disabilities?
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 03 2016
  

       About the same time "ability" was no longer regarded as a measure of ability.

       //"ability" was no longer regarded as a measure of ability.//   

       Ah, but, [LimpNotes], that problem was solved by the invention of the box and, soon thereafter, the tick.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 07 2016
  

       And thereafter, by the phenomenon of Transabled.

       Apotemnophilia?

       Not to be limited to that. Also pretenders - people who are able, but pretend to be disabled because it offers some advantage. People who play the game Wooden Leg <link>. People who ride mobility carts in Walmart <link>.
