Carroll Families Conversations and Connections
Join us on November 29 at 12:15 pm for Carroll Families Conversations and Connections, a monthly Zoom series that connects parents and caregivers who can share ideas, resources, joys, and concerns. Facilitated by Barbara Duffy, a parent of a visually impaired son, our goal is to build strength, comradery, suggestions, solutions, and resources to help those in our care.
About Carroll Families
The Carroll Families program aims to support, educate, and connect parents and other caregivers of children who are blind or visually impaired.
