Family Fun Days!
Thanks to our sponsor the Allstate Foundation , our 2019 Family Fun Days are underway! When it rained in Greeley for our “Picnic in the Park” event, our families had their snack in the public library and touched and smelled some potted herbs. In Grand Junction, a family learned to “hike” in the park with a new pre-cane device. The last “Picnic in the Park” event will take place in Sterling, CO on June 14 th . If you’re interested in sponsoring a future event for A Shared Vision, CONTACT US .
How to Make an Experience Book
Children who are blind or visually impaired develop meaningful concepts through experiences. While a child with vision might understand what a dog is by an illustration in a book, a child who is blind or visually impaired will need to pet a dog and hear it bark to fully understand what a dog is. The experience of meeting a dog can be reinforced by making a tactile experience book where artifacts from an event a child experiences are incorporated onto the pages of a simple, sturdy book. You can make an experience book about any event in your child’s life – a day in the park, a trip to the laundromat or the contents of Mom’s purse.  LEARN HOW
