Parents and carers of children and young people with nystagmus are warmly invited to our first Parents’ Get Together of the year. We are delighted to share that Becky Hyams will be joining us as our special guest. Becky is a second year university student, studying Advertising and Digital Marketing. She has nystagmus herself. She will be sharing her experiences of school, university and also how she wants to raise awareness of disability to help educate others. Becky has created her own blog and social media accounts, ‘beckys.blurred.perspective’ to help achieve this.
If you’d like to receive an invitation to the get together on Tuesday 21 February from 7.30pm, please email us at [email protected]
The annual VIEW conference for QTVIs (Qualified Teachers of Visually Impaired children and young people) is taking place last week and this – virtually.
The Nystagmus Network attends every year. In fact this was the last event Sue attended in 2020 before lockdown.
Sue’s virtual presentation on nystagmus in the classroom is exciting lots of comment and discussion online among delegates. Some of the topics they’re talking about are exams arrangements, work sampling and how to mitigate against potentially disruptive behaviour.
This Thursday, Sue from Nystagmus Network, will be attending the annual VIEW conference for teachers and specialists in educating visually impaired children and young people. The event takes place over two days in Birmingham.
Delegates will find Sue in the exhibition area, eager to demonstrate the support and information the Nystagmus Network has to offer to schools staff.
The Nystagmus Network was delighted to have Rory Cobb with us at Open Day 2017 to lead off the parents’ conference with an informative and inspiring presentation. Rory has a life time’s experience of working in the field of education and supporting children with low vision. Rory was ably assisted by his RNIB colleague, Sue Keil.
