The NM AER conference, which will be held at the Albuquerque Marriott February 8 - 10, 2017, is an opportunity for professionals to meet, network, visit with leaders in the field and to become re-energized in their work.
This year's conference Better Together, reflects the logo of the organization and speaks to our collaborative efforts to integrate our work in the field of blindness into a seamless source of options for all students who need visual impairment support.
The conference will begin with a preconference day, February 8, 2017.
We will be hosting a conference welcome reception on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 6:00 pm with a keynote address from Agnes Vallejos.
Dr. Gordon Dutton, MD, Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Dr. Amanda Lueck, PhD and Dr. Linda Lawrence, MD, Pediatric Ophthalmologist will share their expertise on cerebral visual impairment.
Other highlights of the conference include the Expanded Core Curriculum, assistive technology, orientation and mobility and a panel of graduates from New Mexico schools who will share what they learned from their TVIs and O&Ms that helped them in their careers.
