Hello All, Cliona O' Rourke and Martin Falvey, Assistance Dog Instructors, finish training 5 parents of children with autism tomorrow, at the centre. They will carry out aftercare visits with these clients over the next few weeks. Megg Marchbank, Rehabilitation Worker, finished Orientation and Mobility Refresher Training with a client today. PJ Hogan, Guide Dog Mobility Instructor, and Nathalie Wood, Guide Dog Mobility Apprentice, are carrying out aftercare visits with the four clients they recently trained. Jessica Amberson, Rehabilitation Worker, will be conducting an Independent Livings Skills class commencing July 10th. The class will run for a week. Today, Aileen Foy, Head of Client Support, issued correspondence outlining a planned review of our services that will be undertaken by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI). Your participation in this survey is voluntary. The feedback will exclude all identifying information and the results will be made public. Your participation will be greatly appreciated to help improve our services. Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind held a Client Services Information Day on Wednesday 21st June from 1pm until 5 pm. We were very pleased with the turn out on the day with some of our existing clients attending along with some prospective clients. The attendees were given a tour of all our facilities, and were invited to attend small group sessions in our excellent training kitchen and in our ever improving resource room. Our instructors were on hand to answer any queries that arose which in some case developed into demonstrations. We plan to host another information day later in the year. We will keep you posted. Regards, Lean Kennedy, Access and Education Officer, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.
