Myanmar colleagues undertake a Low-Vision Training Course in Adelaide

A/Prof Than Htun Aung, Ms Judy Bickmore, Ms Thinn Thinn Swe, Dr Cesar Carrillo

The course was made possible through our partnership with the Royal Society for the Blind (RSB) and the South Australian School for Vision Impaired, who provided A/Prof Aung and Ms Swe with hands-on learning.  It included training with the RSB's experienced team, including their guide dog assistance services, and visiting various schools for vision impaired across Adelaide, to see first-hand how children are benefiting from specialised learning tools and equipment. 

To quote A/Prof Aung "RSB Guide & Assistance Dog Service is an amazing place providing excellent support for people with very poor vision to live life with confidence!". Our partner colleagues from Myanmar will now be able to use their skills to assist people with poor vision.
