The Northeast Chapter of the Association for the Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (NEAER) in conjunction with the Association of Vision Rehabilitation Therapists (AVRT) will be meeting in person for their annual conference this year in Portland, Maine. We will have exciting speakers and wonderful networking opportunities.
Our Conferences always strive to provide exemplary professional development to all branches of our fields, and this year is no different. This year’s theme, “Strong Roots…Many Routes”, is the acknowledgement that with our strong professional foundations, we are all able to help our clients reach their ultimate goals even if we are coming from different directions. Ideally, we are seeking to hold sessions in the track areas: education, rehabilitation, technology, orientation & mobility, guide dogs, employment and research. Consider topics such as assessment, teaching methods, transition, self-determination, and collaboration. This year’s conference will reach out beyond our current limits and take our services to new heights!
We invite you to submit session proposals for breakout sessions or a poster session. Proposals should have a practical focus and may address a specific area of rehabilitation practices or principles. Sessions can be 60 minutes or 90 minutes in length. The conference will be designed to encourage participants to expand upon their techniques and resources.
Please consider submitting a proposal using the following form. Additional information can be found at:
