5/3 PLAY WITH KIDS!

WHAT     Take care of and play with children
         so that their parents can get the most
         from a conference focused on the needs
         of visually impaired children

WHEN     Saturday, May 3, 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM

WHERE    Perkins School for the Blind, Watertown

WHY      It's fun to play! 
         The 31st annual New England Regional Seminar
         for Families of Children with Visual
         Impairments conference needs us to help
         care for 3-, 4-year old children who
         have visual impairments and/or multiple
         disabilities, as well as care for their
         sighted siblings. Supervised child care
         enables parents to participate fully in
         the conference, learning about resources
         and networking with and receiving support
         from professionals and families like theirs.

         Training, supervision, activities, and lunch
         break will be provided. Children select
         from organized age- and ability-appropriate
         activities at wonderful playgrounds, gyms,
         and other play spaces.

         Professional child care providers assist
         volunteers as needed. All children love to
         play, so please don't let (dis)abilities
         intimidate you.

         Volunteers must be at least 14 years old.
