Raising a child with visual impairment can feel isolating and overwhelming at times. Maintaining a healthy balance with self, partner, family, and community while providing the best care possible for your child can be very challenging. This workshop will provide a safe space to address self-care for parents and tools for building a strong family foundation. You will have an opportunity to connect with other parents and discuss how to be a strong, healthy role model for your child, family, and community.
