We meet the last Monday of the month in October, November, February, March and April at 7:30. The location varies around the city.
This is very casual where everyone can share information, new toys or books, discuss case studies or any other burning questions people may have. We also try to have someone/a group of people share information on a specific topic, such as a course they have been to or an interesting book they have read.
We are always looking for someone to share information. If you would be willing to do so, please contact Carol Vickery at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next meetings are:

Monday April 30
Topic: Dr. Charles Boulet works out of Black Diamond area and is a 'developmental optometrist', but has a particular take on it given that his background is initially in neuropsych and education. He does full visual rehabilitation, but he also includes many other elements necessary for building success in schools, elements such as self-awareness and self-control, mental focus, varied gross and fine motor skill activities, as well as numerous cognitive skills. Charles finds OTs much more realistic about the impact of visual dysfunction vis-a-vis reading and he would like to engage in related conversations. He will be bringing some activities and resources to share. You can check out more information at www.LearningManagement.ca or http://archieslaw.com/
