SPEVI Members’ Projects

SPEVI is an association of, and for, its members. The Australian SPEVI Committee of Management invites current members to consider submitting proposals for projects, activities, or events that support SPEVI’s Mission and Aims, and for which a funding contribution from SPEVI is sought.

Members should use the SPEVI Members Project Submission Form and email this to the SPEVI membership secretary (email address provided in the form). Additional relevant information should accompany the project application.

In May 2019, the Committee of Management approved the provision of grants for two projects that are aligned with and promote SPEVI’s Mission and Aims.

  • Creation of an archive of the presentations and papers of previous and future SPEVI Conferences. This project has been completed. The papers and presentations for the 2013, 2015 and 2017 conferences are now available on the Conferences page of the SPEVI website.
  • Publication of a booklet by Emma-Mae Schmidt, entitled ‘The Blind Girl's Guide to Puberty’. SPEVI’s contribution includes assisting Emma-Mae to create the front cover, organising the booklet’s ISBN, checking the accessibility of content, and posting the booklet on the SPEVI website for easy download. This project has been completed. The booklet is available in a Word and PDF format from the page with educational resources.

We extend our thanks to Lena Karam of RIDBC Renwick Centre for undertaking the work required to complete these projects.
