CVI Parent/Caregiver Community Chats – Focus on Complex Learners/Deafblind

Speakers: Deafblind specialists Amanda Toczylowski and Megan Connaughton.

Do you have a child of any age who is a complex learner or deafblind diagnosed with CVI or suspect they might have CVI? Join us for a friendly virtual session where you can connect with other parents facing similar challenges. This will be a relaxed gathering to share experiences, discuss successes and difficulties, and exchange helpful tips and tools. We’re excited to welcome both Amanda and Megan, teachers in the deafblind program with years of experience supporting medically complex/deafblind learners with CVI, to offer their valuable insights. A dedicated moderator will be present to guide the discussions and provide support as needed.
