Low Vision Conference
We were very eager to have a chance to be one of eighteen international exhibitors to exhibit at the Vision2104, the International Society for Low Vision Research and the Rehabilitation’s 11th International Conference on Low Vision in 2014, in Melbourne, Australia. It was an excellent opportunity to learn about the world’s leading research and practice in blindness & low vision; and to meet the keynote speakers! I was really glad to share our design and vision with these leaders and received their very encouraging feedback!
We also really enjoyed sharing our design to overseas and local experts, and also see the visitors trying the Reach & Match®. It was really encouraging to receive the great feedback amongst the professionals, educators and parents; and I was very happy to receive orders among international and local organisations, schools and education centres. I am also excited about potential collaboration with local and overseas organisation in the future, and cannot wait to see Reach & Match® enjoyed by their children!
I was by interviewed by the Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted and spoke about how Reach & Match® Learning Kit helps children with low vision and various other disabilities in order to develop motor, cognitive, and social & communication skills.
There were a lot of people I met and I appreciated their encouragement and feedback. We would like to express my appreciation here to Vision Australia, the Guide Dog Organisations (Victoria, Queensland & W.A.), the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Australian College of Optometry, Blind Foundation (New Zealand), Perkins (U.S.A.), Bartimeus (Netherlands), Hong Kong Blind Society and Ebenezer School of the Visually Impaired in Hong Kong.
Thank you everyone for your support and I look forward to seeing you all again!
