Anna Wroblewska, a Fulbright grantee, who is hosted by the University of San Francisco, and is herself blind, is conducting a study on the biographical experiences of blind and low vision people who use LightHouse services. She is looking for participants to interview and the interviews will be recorded. The research findings will be used to support designing of high-quality training programs for the blind in Poland and the United States.
To be eligible, the participant must be at least 18 years old, live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have an experience of taking part in one of the services provided by the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco listed below:
- Changing Vision, Changing Life,
- Employment Immersion,
- Summer camp at Enchanted Hills Camp.
The participants will be interviewed personally, during one or two sessions if necessary. Each session will take about 3 hours. Interviews will be conducted at a place convenient to each participant, such as at home, in a space at the LightHouse, or in a mutually-selected community location.
LightHouse supports this research.
