Guide Dogs for the Blind unleashed several new on-line learning opportunities in the month of April for transition age youth who are blind or visually impaired, their parents and/or other family members, and professionals in the field of blindness and low vision education and rehabilitation! We continue pursuing how GDB can support the development of youths with visual impairments. The new “Ready, Set, FORWARD” program is a multipronged approach aimed at reaching youths, their parents/guardians, as well as education/rehabilitation professionals working with them. Following the launch of this new program, we look forward to growing it. GDB can provide a well-trained dog, but the decision to apply for one starts with youth, the parent, and the professionals working with them – as the saying goes, ‘it takes a village’. Because many factors need to be considered when making the personal decision to use a cane or a guide dog for one’s primary mobility aid, we are committed to assisting blind and visually impaired youth and the community that supports them be as well informed and prepared as possible to make that decision to cane or canine when the time is right. Come and learn more!
