Blindness Low Vision Experience

The Blindness Low Vision Experience Activities

The Whole Person’s Blindness Low Vision Experience program encourages individuals to enjoy opportunities to achieve greater independence and access to the community through physical and outdoor activities, art and cultural events and other experiences.

Examples of activities include "Yoga for Everyone!" (flexibility and strength class), "Time to Spare" (accessible bowling), Tech Talk (guest speakers on a variety of topics), Mind's Eye View Peer Support Group and adaptive sports activities throughout the year.  Each activity meets on different dates and times depending on activities. See calendar listings below.

TWP creates accessible documents for all our programs to support participants who are blind or have low vision.  Contact Meghan Schmidt for assistance.
