It is only June and we are already gearing up for a wonderful 2019 O&M Symposium!
First off, the dates of the 2019 O&M Symposium are set! Mark your calendars for January 30--February 1, 2019. These dates are set in Eastern Standard Time, specifically the New York version. For our friends in the Western hemisphere, these dates correlate to January 31--February 2.
Second, Presentation Applications are now OPEN! This is your chance to really make a difference in the lives of people with visual impairments all over the world.
If you have had success with your students, we want to know about them! Let us know what successes you have had with your students and how you helped them with their mobility skills.
There is no "theme" to our symposium. We welcome presentations of all subjects; as long as they help our students become more independent.
We would also love to have the point of view from people with visual impairments who have seen success in their own Orientation and Mobility skills.
Presentation Applications will be open until September 28, 2018.
Participants that have already registered by then will vote on which presentations they want to see in October. Don't worry, we will let you know when registration opens!
If you apply to present, you will be notified what the community decides by the end of October.
If you are interested in applying to present, fill out the Presentation Application today!
If you'd like to be notified when registration opens, join our interest list! We will email you with information about the symposium as it comes up.
As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great beginning of summer or end of your school year, friends!
