Teachers of The Visually Impaired (TVI) from the Blind Babies Foundation (BBF) will be visiting us this

Thursday, November 15, 2018.


This is an opportunity to engage in an informal "around the table" discussion with Dr Pam Chapin, Head of BBF

and colleagues.


Please do take time to look at their website where you will find that they provide services to babies,

young children, and also to adults.


Here are a few topics that Dr. Chapin and colleagues will discuss:



·         What exactly they do at BBF

·         What the significant challenges facing children, their parents/caregivers are

·         TVI in vision rehabilitation of visually impaired children

·         What they hope research would focus on and finally how they might work with us.


You will have an opportunity to listen and ask questions to enlighten your knowledge on vision impairment in

children and the services they provide to the adult visually impaired.


Pam Chapin and about 10 colleagues will visit SK from 10:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


Everyone is welcome and lunch will be provided.
