When You Can’t Believe Your Eyes: Self-advocacy and Low Vision

Date: July 26, 2021

Time (stated in Eastern Time): 5:00-6:30PM ET

Description: In observance of the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, author Hannah Fairbairn, will discuss the problem with eye contact, smiling, and nodding for people with low vision. You may not see much of this now and feel confused, not knowing whether someone is responding or not. Learning self-advocacy by using a “speak up” style can help. The ADA gives us some great ways to practice starting conversations and gain social confidence. 

ACVREP credit is available for the live webinar. Register HERE.
