The Canine Connection-Is Your Child Ready for a Guide Dog?
April 5, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDTFree
Has your child expressed an interest in using a guide dog for their mobility, or are you wanting to educate yourself so that you can better help guide
your child as their independence increases? Then you don’t want to miss this informative workshop where we will talk about what it means to be ready for
a guide dog, the important role independent living skills (ILS) play in guide dog readiness, some practical tools you can use to help prepare them if this
is the path they choose, and the critical role your child’s orientation and mobility (O&M) skills play in guide dog readiness. You will hear about GDB’s
K9 Buddy program for families with younger children who are blind or visually impaired, and we will also have a special guest who will share some insight
about your child’s Independent Education Plan (IEP) and goals around their O&M skills training in regard to guide dog travel.
Open to parents and family members of youth who are blind or visually impaired
Date: Monday April 5, 2021
