"Kids in the Kitchen" Online Seminar Offers Safety, Teaching Tips

Winnetka, IL - For many families, the kitchen is the most important place in
a home. Often a focal point for family social interaction, the kitchen
offers many activities that engage every member of a household: from eating
to chores to discussion of day-to-day events.  It is also a place for
learning and offers smells, tastes, sounds and hands-on experiences,
especially essential for children. Safety concerns often discourage parents
of visually impaired children from allowing them to participate in kitchen
activities. 

In the upcoming Seminar at Hadley, "Kids in the Kitchen", we will discuss
techniques and teaching tips to help caregivers feel comfortable allowing
their blind child to participate in cooking and cleaning activities. Please
join us and share your own concerns, experiences and ideas.

Presenters will be Linn Sorge and Sue Melrose, Hadley instructors, with
discussion moderated by Karen Woodfork, Director of Student Services. The
seminar will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at 11 a.m. CDT and 4 p.m. GMT.
