If you are new to vision loss, you may be feeling overwhelmed and in need of additional support. Studies have shown that joining a support group comprised of individuals dealing with similar challenges can help alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety.
Benefits include a gained sense of self-confidence, coping skills to adjust to vision loss and a discovery of resources, services and devices that meet your needs.
Our groups meet monthly to share their feelings and experiences and to exchange ideas and information in a safe and confidential environment.
Technology Users Group
The monthly meetings focus on advancing access to and knowledge of computers and other assistive technology commonly used by the blind and visually impaired community. Demonstrations of useful apps for iOS and android devices will be discussed . Opportunties for open forum discussions allow members to ask questions relating to assistive technology.
From time to time the Association will host specially planned group events to promote active living with vision loss. These may include accessible sewing and cooking, adaptive recreational activities, infant/toddler playgroups and school-aged enrichment programs.
