Weekly Virtual Support Group

April 29 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth is hosting a Virtual Adjustment to Blindness Support Group!

While we continue to monitor the developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we would like to stay in communication as much as possible. For the time being, we’ve decided to host weekly (virtual) support groups and will try to have a guest speaker each week.

This week, April 29th, we are excited to have Ms. Neva Fairchild join us! Neva has been with AFB since 2008 as the National Aging and Vision Loss Specialist. Neva has over 20 years of professional experience in the field of vision loss and a lifetime of experience living with low vision. She was diagnosed at an early age with Cone Rod Degeneration, a rare genetic eye condition. Neva holds a bachelor’s in Rehabilitation Science and a master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling Psychology from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Her expertise in adult learning and psychology paired with an extensive knowledge of applied solutions, techniques, and tools for adapting to low vision, enables her to add valuable and practical insights in a variety of settings.

We are also excited to have Ms. Chelsea White from The Seeing Eye join us. Chelsea has worked for The Seeing Eye for 20 years as an Outreach Specialist and is a graduate from the program, working with her fifth dog, Brooke. She travels the United States and Canada educating people on dog guides and The Seeing Eye’s program.

Please join us via Zoom, every Wednesday. We know several of you are not familiar with Zoom, but it is fairly easy to use. Please allow yourself plenty of time to join the meeting. If you need assistance, call Shawn Keen at 817-529-7811.
