RTC Workshop at Carroll Center for the Blind - LeJeune

The RTC will conduct a workshop with the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind at the Carroll Center for the Blind, in Newton, Massachusetts on October 26 & 27 to address issues related to facilitating the employment of older blind adults. Presenters will include MSU-RRTC Training Coordinator B. J. LeJeune (CRC, CVRT), Kit Hayes (Founder of LifeWork Design in Arlington, Massachusetts), and Brian Charlson (Director of Technology at the Carroll Center). The workshop is designed to address strategies that may help rehabilitation and employment counselors who work with older adults with vision impairments, as current trends have made finding employment opportunities more challenging for this population.
