Carroll Families Conversations and Connections

Join us on Wednesday, May 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 initiative aims to support, educate, and connect parents and other caregivers of children who are blind or visually impaired. We feel that sharing resources and offering emotional support for the unique needs of parents with children experiencing vision loss is critical and we look forward to growing this supportive community.
