This exciting and dynamic day is aimed at teachers of VI, special school teachers, early years professionals who have implemented the award winning Positive Looking programme into their practice. It is also aimed at educators who would like to find out why they have done this and the positive outcomes they are achieving through it's use.
This is an opportunity to be part of the creation of community based Positive Looking resources that are available to all who use the programme. It's an opportunity to share best practice, learn from one another, listen to leaders in the field of vision impairment and to be productive as we join together to create resources for children that we can all use.
