Join us for this one-day family friendly, and certainly dog friendly, workshop. It has something for everyone! Are you a parent or a family member of a child with a visual impairment and would like to know more about how to teach and encourage more independence at home? Does your child like to learn about and have fun with dogs? This workshop is for all of you.

In the morning, children will get a chance for hands-on experience walking, grooming, and caring for dogs along with learning about responsible pet ownership. Meanwhile, parents and family members will learn about the tools available to help implement and support their child's learning and practicing of daily living skills. You will leave with helpful resources that can be put to use right away and some fun dog-related activities to enjoy at home.

Date: Monday, September 11th, 2023
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location: California School for the Blind: 500 Walnut Avenue, Fremont, CA 94536
