The Adjustment to Vision Loss series provides you with an inclusive support network and a place to share practical support strategies. 

The topics covered in this eight-week series include (in no particular order):

  • Goals and motivation
  • Grief and vision loss
  • Assistive technology and home modifications
  • Orientation and Mobility
  • Community resources
  • Assertiveness and the importance of self-advocacy
  • Revisit the assistive technology piece and get participants to comment on the adaptations they’ve made, then have a guest speaker to talk about equipment available in the store.
  • On the last day, we will review the program, answer remaining questions and address unresolved issues, then have a celebratory luncheon with pizza
