Let’s Chat About … Self-Advocacy in the Classroom
Beth Borysewicz is the Vice Chair on the Hope in Focus Board of Directors, and is an Education Consultant for the Department of Aging and Disabilities, Bureau of Education Services for the Blind. Beth found her passion working with the blind and low vision community unexpectedly when she had a 3 year old named Sofia in her class 16 years ago diagnosed with LCA. As a Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments, she has focused her career on teaching her students self-advocacy and exploring the Expanded Core Curriculum in fun and exciting ways.
Beth also authors her own blog dedicated to professionals, families and students titled, I Love Brl (Braille) https://ilovebrl.com
Hope in Focus is proud to bring our web series “Let’s Chat About …” to the Leber congenital amaurosis and rare inherited retinal disease communities. We’ve developed the series with those living with LCA and IRDs in mind, but we invite all members of our community, including those in research, industry, and the regulatory communities to join any of the sessions, as we look ahead to a common goal of advancing treatments for rare retinal disease.
