Opportunities to connect with other Usher families are vital, as they help us all learn and share ideas about how to best support our children. Our Zoom video calls will cover a range of topics, and are aimed at any parent or carer of a child with Usher syndrome.

If you prefer you can switch off your video, mute your microphone and just listen in. We will have parents of children at different ages and stages joining us, so this is a great place to meet others, ask questions, share experiences and benefit from peer support.
