Seminars@Hadley are the best! The technology seminars are especially relevant; the information I acquired helped me learn about my iPhone.

Independent Living: Personal Care

This course is for professionals who work with students who are visually impaired. Personal care issues are among the first challenges people face when losing vision. The good news is that various tips, techniques, and tricks help solve personal care issues. This course explores personal care issues from organizing and identifying supplies to dental care and wellness tips. It then focuses on health issues, from addressing minor cuts and burns to taking medication and caring for oneself when sick. It explores both female- and male-related topics, from hair, nail, and skin care to makeup and feminine hygiene, or to shaving and trimming facial hair. Discovering ways to manage personal care will allow the student to help a client with visual impairment live more independently.
Note: this course does NOT replace training from a rehabilitation professional.
