Rehab Forum – Being a mum with lived experience
Tuesday 10 October 2023
9:00 am to 10:00am
Please note, that this session is suitable for people who are rehab/hab practitioners or who manage rehab/hab practitioners.
The session will be facilitated by Nina Chesworth, Visionary’s Projects and Campaigns Co-ordinator. Nina will be assisted by her PA. In addition to facilitating, Nina will share her own experiences of being a mum with a varied level of sight. As her son becomes a teenager, they have gone through many changes in Nina’s vision from having some sight in one eye to now being totally blind. Nina will share the challenges and impact of this on being a mum.
Nina will be joined by Audrey Ward, Training and Information Specialist at Visibility Scotland. Audrey is a mum who was sighted when her first son was born and blind when she had her second son. Both Audrey’s boys are now men, and she will share her experiences of that journey.
Nina and Audrey will talk for approximately 10 – 15 minutes each and we will have 30 minutes for questions.
Please note: This session replaces the bi-monthly Rehab Forum on 10 October 2023, 9am to 10am. Therefore, even if you have already registered on the Rehab Forum, separate registration is required for this session, so please register using the above link.
