SPEVI 2020 Conference!
And then it was all behind us. The 2020 SPEVI Conference in Adelaide (12-15 January 2020) was a great success, with thanks to the South Australia SPEVI Local Organising Committee, and event organisers Synergy. The conference delivered on its promise: it brought together researchers, allied health professionals, an impressive number of parents and caregivers, and many more from across our region and globally who support children and young people with vision impairment. We heard valuable diverse perspectives on the Conference theme “Creating a clear vision for the future”. The keynote speakers Emily White and Mike McLinden gave all delegates great insights into relevant topics in the field of vision impairment education. SPEVI Leaders in Vision Impairment had a meeting to discuss concerns or opportunities. The event dinner was a party. If you weren’t there: make sure that you attend the next SPEVI Conference!
