Early Connections Conference
Taking Care of Our Children ... Taking Care of Ourselves
The 31st Annual Early Connections Conference "Taking Care of Our Children… Taking Care of Ourselves" will be held on May 3, 2014, at Perkins' Watertown campus.
This annual conference offers a unique opportunity for parents of children with visual impairments (birth-7) and professionals to come together to both learn new information and to network. Lunch and childcare are provided.
Some sessions will include "make and take" activities as well as practical advice for increasing independence whether your child has low vision, or is blind, deafblind, with or without additional disabilities. Parent-to-Parent Support groups will be offered providing an opportunity for parents of children with similar visual and/or sensory impairments to meet and share their experiences and ideas. Our keynote speaker will be Susan LaVenture, Executive Director of NAPVI.
