Receiving the appropriate equipment, services, and accommodations that will help your low vision or blind child succeed can be a difficult path to navigate. Knowing your rights, and having a community to share resources with, can make your voyage to success just a little easier.
To help parents and guardians understand their child’s rights and gain a deeper connection with other families, LightHouse and our friends from Disability Rights California (DRC) will be hosting a webinar with a more in-depth conversation about reasonable accommodations
