Youth and Parent Institutes

With the CTEBVI conference going virtual, the Youth and Parent Institutes will be doing the same, opening the door for many students and parents who might not have been able to attend an in-person conference.

CTEBVI Youth Institute

Programming starts Friday evening with a kick-off event at 5:30 p.m. PDT. This will include an introduction and appropriately themed happy hour and social for both youth and parents.

Our Saturday program will be broken up into age groups, with elementary and middle school youth in the morning and teens in the afternoon.

Please be sure to register by Friday, April 2nd so that our friends at Braille Institute have time to mail you a bag of program supplies and conference gifts.


CTEBVI Parent Institute

This year's Parent Institute offers four sessions on Saturday: Advocacy, Assistive Technology, Independence, and Transition.

Each session will begin with a presentation of a nationally recognized leader in the blindness field, followed by small and large group discussions with other parents and professionals.
