You Can Go Back Again: Sharon Sutherland Hones Her Skills at our Changing Vision, Changing Lives Immersion Class at Enchanted Hills

Sharon Sutherland is a Registered Nurse whose career was put on hold when her vision suddenly decreased. She has attended our Changing Vision Changing Lives Immersion training not once, but twice. The first time she focused on general skills such as an introduction to access technology, cane travel, day to day living skills, braille and self-advocacy. She returned a second time to zero in on her ZoomText and braille skills. Her participation in our immersion trainings at Enchanted Hills has provided her with the knowledge, support and resources to that will allow her to return to her profession. In fact, she will be renewing her nursing license soon.Sharon Sutherland writes using a Perkins Brailler

“I truly appreciate being able to come back to the class at Enchanted Hills to get individualized training. And I loved meeting the new students and sharing what I’ve been doing with them,” she told us.
