Next Online Parent Group: Meet Working Blind Adults

Most parents who are raising a child who is blind or partially sighted worry about whether or not their child will some day have a job.  There is a high unemployment rate for persons who are blind after all, so this is a valid concern.  Thankfully lots of us do have jobs, and on Wednesday February 6 we are going to share how we chose our current job, or how it chose us; what qualities attributed to our success in our job; and what our parents did, or what we wish they had done to support us in the pursuit of our career.

Join us at 7:30 PM, and meet Charmaine, a lawyer, Jessica, an Apple Store employee, Grant, a TV reporter, and Shawn an Executive Director.  Each will share about their employment journeys, and following their presentations parents will have an opportunity to ask questions.

When: Wednesday February 6

Time: 7:30 – 9:00 PM

Where: From your computer or phone

How: Using Zoom – it’s free and really simple to use.  When you click on the link we send you, it will download the app you need.

Please note: You can also call in from your phone, but this will be a long-distance Canadian number so if you don’t have free calling in Canada there will be long distance charges.

If you wish to join the group, please email and request the link to join.
