Come and meet other parents of Visually Impaired children every other Tuesday at 19:30 GMT in our free, online meet-up session.
As the summer holidays draw to a close next week, on Tuesday 31st August we will take the opportunity to share our summer holiday successes and what we did to manage the long break.
We will also be discussing preparing our children for the start of the new school year. How are you feeling, do you feel ready? What support is available for you and your child?
Our fortnightly parent chats are aimed at creating a community of support during these incredibly challenging times. We might be experiencing a bit more freedom but the impact of COVID 19 on our young people, ourselves and wider SEND community will remain for a long time.
The session on September 14th will continue the topic of back to school where we can catch up on the first week, good or bad,
The themed session on September 28th is a panel event – “Transitioning to Higher Education”
The hang out will be facilitated by LOOK. Everyone is welcome!
Come and talk about your experiences of supporting your Visually Impaired children and helping them navigate the very visual world we live in. Share your feelings, frustrations, ideas and coping strategies. You don’t have to feel stuck or on your own, our growing community of parent carers want to listen, support, offer advice and reassurance.
Let us know what questions you may have and what topics you’d like to discuss?
Tell us what information or advice you need – we will get it for you!
Or just come and have a listen and a friendly chat with people who are in the same boat as you.
Be a part of LOOK’s supportive community.
