Calling all Parents and Guardians of VI children facing the prospect of home-schooling.

Join us for an online chat tonight with our Education Specialist John Milligan from the Norfolk Virtual School as well as John Turnbull – Specialist Education Officer, Jemma Kegan, Advice Team Manager and Andrea Davies – Special Education Officer from the Guide Dogs UK Education Team. Get advice on home-schooling, support, resources and much more.

John heads up the Norfolk Virtual Sensory Support team and has 30 years of experience supporting visually impaired students. The Guide Dogs UK Education Team have a wealth of knowledge and resources that they want to share with our VI community, as well as offering support to all families.

The Corona Virus has disrupted all of our lives in so many ways. With schools across the UK closing as of today, life’s routine has been interrupted as many of you will now be at home with your child for the foreseeable future, potentially juggling your own work and their learning needs.

We realise that this could be a stressful time for many thinking of you, and naturally, there’s more to consider for children with VI and other needs.
We want to help all parents and guardians of visually impaired children during this difficult time. Look is here for you – we know you’ve got this!

This Q&A session is Look’s first in a series of informative discussions about how to support VI young people’s home learning. Join us for a chat this evening, listen to expert advice from John and enjoy being part of a supportive group of like-minded people; we are all in this together and we will get through it.

We’ll discuss:

  • How this crisis is affecting you.
  • How to manage your child’s learning and future exams.
  • Accessibility of home learning.
  • And much more!

We want to hear from you and help you; see you at 8pm tonight!

Once you have registered, we will send you a digital link and/or dial-in information for the webinar.
