Ep 22: “The Young Ones”, Ryan Honschooten - Just Why It Matters

October 8, 2019

The Young Ones... how different are young people with a vision-impairment from their earlier generations? How has digital technology and new support systems influenced their response to living with blindness and low-Vision? Ryan Honschooten, Youth Support Coordinator at VisAbility, shares his observations and experience from his many years working with children and youths across a wide age-spectrum. We talked about their aspirations, anxieties and other issues which are common phases of growing up plus examining  other aspects peculiar to a youth living without sight.
