Guide Dogs for the Blind is excited to once again unleash our “Ready, Set, FORWARD” workshop series,  for parents, youth, and professionals in the field of blindness and low vision education and rehabilitation! We continue pursuing how GDB can support the development of youths with visual impairments. We launched this program in April of this year, and are looking forward to its continued growth. GDB can provide a well-trained dog, but the decision to apply for one starts with youth, the parent, and the professionals working with them – as the saying goes, ‘it takes a village’. Because many factors need to be considered when making the personal decision to use a cane or a guide dog for one’s primary mobility aid, we are committed to assisting blind and visually impaired youth and the community that supports them be as well informed and prepared as possible to make that decision to cane or canine when the time is right. Come and learn more!

Learning Objectives:

  • Why did Guide Dogs for the Blind develop the "Ready, Set, FORWARD" program?

  • What does it mean to be ready for a Guide Dog?

  • How does the "Ready, Set, FORWARD" program go beyond just preparing youth and their families for the guide dog lifestyle?
