Eyes and Independence
It’s been a busy week including regional travel to areas outside of Brisbane. When I made the big decision about setting up my own business, I didn’t really know where it would take me but I was determined to continue to pursue my passion in the field of disability and ensure those children could continue to access quality support. Along the way, I have also been supporting adults of all ages dealing with vision loss, newly acquired change in vision, and assisting in their acceptance of the loss or change they were now experiencing.
It’s been wonderful meeting up with past students years down the track. It’s a good feeling having been a part of their journey. Providing Orientation and Mobility lessons may have been the first opportunities where the person involved started on their way towards independence. Years down the track, I have observed them catching buses, crossing roads, working in a job and making plans for the future. I love to see progress. And I guess that’s why I enjoy my work so much – I do see results, I see progress and optimism, drive and enthusiasm. I see success.
Currently in my role, I am:
