The 2019 Summit will focus on expanding your world from school to post-secondary, including understanding the resources, services, and opportunities that are available for transition, employment, and independent living and community involvement. To ensure success, a blind or visually impaired child/adult must possess self-confidence and the knowledge that it is respectable to be blind, and the skills and techniques of daily living. The purpose of this conference is to provide information to students with blindness or visual impairment, their families, and service providers. We will identify available resources, services, and career opportunities. Our goal is to help parents, teachers and students understand that they can expand their world, live independently and achieve academic and vocational success.
