Some people lose their vision as adults through age-related disease or accidents. But many people lose their vision as children. In this episode, our hosts interview Katie Perez, the Southeastern Guide Dogs staff member who manages our programs for children and teens. Katie shares about our companion dogs for children with vision loss, our Guide Dog Camp for teens and parents, our Gold Star family dogs, and our guide dog program for teens. These programs change the trajectory of children’s lives, giving them new confidence and independence. You’ll hear from parents of these kids, too. Don’t miss this episode.
