Seminars@Hadley Presents: Dog Guides for Multiply Disabled People

Date: Thursday, April 28

Time: 11:00 AM CDT, 16:00 GMT

Maybe you've considered obtaining a dog guide but have been discouraged because you couldn't find a program designed for a blind multiply disabled person. Do not despair. Several dog guide schools have programs which train dogs specifically for users with multiple disabilities.
To find out if you'd be a good candidate or if one of your consumers/students might benefit, join Seminars@Hadley as Ellin Purcell, Director of Special Needs, Guiding Eyes for the Blind; Michelle Pouliot, Director of Research and Devopment, Guide Dogs for the Blind; and Keith McGregor, Director of Canine Training and Deaf-Blind Services, Leader Dogs for the Blind discuss programs at their schools designed for multiply disabled users.

This 60 minute seminar will be moderated by Billy Brookshire, Hadley Texas Outreach Coordinator. A question and answer session will be included as part of the seminar.

As always, listening to the seminar remains free of charge. There is a US $25 fee associated with completing the seminar for credit (1 CE hour). Professionals interested in receiving continuing education credit will be required to successfully complete a quiz and brief survey before a certificate is issued.
