The objective of the day is to meet other parents, get information on Féach and on service providers, share your feedback on what you and your children need. There will be a number of service providers there on the day that you can speak with to understand what they offer and their future plans. Children with VI will give demonstrations on how they use their tech including Polaris, Mercury 12 and Looky Book.
