The Canine Connection-Is Your Child Ready?
March 2, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm PSTFree
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, what are 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 & Mobility (O&M) skills play in guide dog readiness. You will learn about GDB’s K9 Buddy program for families with children who are blind or visually impaired and may not be quite ready for a guide dog, and we will share some insight about your child’s Independent Education Plan (IEP) and goals around their O&M skills training in regards to guide dog travel.
