OIB-TAC February Webinar: Navigating the Early Stages of Adjustment

Join OIB-TAC on February 16, 2024, for our next webinar on navigating the early stages of adjustment. As professionals, we recognize that a new diagnosis of vision impairment can bring feelings of sadness, fear, frustration, and even stubbornness, which can impede an individual from seeking or accepting help.  What can we do to facilitate growth in this early stage? Join Jennifer Ottowitz, CVRT and Older Blind Specialist with OIB-TAC to explore supportive strategies, which can guide you in your work with individuals as they navigate through this challenging journey from the initial reactions and emotions associated with vision impairment to find the path to adjustment.
