Efrit, Peanut, Sprout and I went to our first Family Resource Weekend at the Kansas State School for the Blind (KSSB) last year, and it was amazing. Aside from the troops of children of all ages with their white canes heading off to the kids’ events (they provided free childcare), which was pretty neat for people used to having the only white cane in the room, we learned a lot. We emerged with new contacts, new insight, and enough reading material to keep us busy for the next year (seriously–I just filed about two reams’ worth, and that’s just the stuff I kept.).
This year’s Family Resource Weekend is scheduled for November 16-17, 2012. There’s not much information yet, but I encourage you to save the date for this excellent event.
