The theme for this year’s convention is ‘Embracing a Different Normality’. We will be exploring how to break down the traditional mindsets which may present those with CVI from achieving their potential in all aspects of their lives.

The convention is a chance for people to learn and ask questions of some of the leading experts in the field. It will also provide an opportunity for families to connect with others who have children with cerebral visual impairment and for professionals to network with people who are interested in the field.

Places will be limited so please book early.

Closing date Friday 22nd September or earlier should all places be taken.

The convention will cost £15 for each parent or person with full parental responsibility and £75 for professionals, to include lunch and refreshments.
