Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Join in a Workshop on January 17: The Parent Balancing Challenge

Raising a child who has a visual impairment “can feel isolating and overwhelming at times” and can pose challenges to relationships within the family and in the community while providing the best care possible for the child. This workshop will provide a safe space to consider self-care for parents and tools to build a strong family foundation. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with other parents and talk about how to be a strong, healthy role model for your child, family, and community. Presenter Sheila Adamo, LSCW, CADC, a licensed clinical social worker and therapist, co-owns Building Parent Connections, which offers education, guidance, and support to parents of children with special needs. She also manages the New Parent Program, Parent Connections, and Grandparents Connections for the National Organization of Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH).  The workshop, a Lighthouse Guild Tele-Support Presentation, will take place from 8:30 to 9:30 pm ET.
