TUESDAY: ASB Sensitivity Training 

ASB is offering a training session on Tuesday, December 14 at 10 a.m. to assist professionals who work with or provide services to people living with vision loss. The training will discuss questions such as:

  • How do I know if someone needs help crossing the street? 
  • When should I offer assistance versus getting out of the way?
  • Is it okay to pet a guide dog? 
  • Are my services or programs accommodating to participants living with vision loss?
  • What else can I do to enhance my services?

The session will include general information about blindness and vision loss, preferred language and practical tools to better work with friends, family or clients who are blind or experiencing vision loss. There will be time to ask questions and engage in activities to help illustrate real-world examples. Bring your desire to learn, and we’ll help guide you to a better understanding. More information is listed below.

  • When: The second Tuesday of each month, at 10 a.m.
