Matthew Layton presents Studio 1 – Vision Australia Radio’s new-ish weekly show on life in Australia from a low vision and blind point of view.

 

This week’s show revolves around a question that visually impaired people get asked all the time.

 

“How much can you see?”

 

It’s a difficult question to answer and can make the person being asked feel uncomfortable or come across as defensive.

 

In this week’s show we try to find the positive in a negative. Can we visually impaired people get better at communicating with each other and with sighted people – and maybe even feel a little more confident in our answers?

 

With this aim in mind, Matthew enlists the help of the show’s resident emotional guru, Tammy Candeloro, Australian Counselling Association registered counsellor and proprietor of Counselling 4 You.

 

We also ask the question of some real-life VIPs: Kaya Sellek, Tina Kresojevic, Vicky Couzens and Sam Rickard.

 

Please get involved in the conversation:

The first episode of Studio 1 - Vision Australia Radio’s brand new show that takes a look at life in Australia from a low vision and blind point of view.

This week presenter Matthew Layton takes a look at the bushfire crisis from a low-vision perspective by travelling to Orbost in rural Victoria to talk to Tina Kresojevic.

Tina tells us what it’s like to face a sixty foot wall of flame when you can’t see it coming.

The show also features a panel discussion on preparing for and recovering from a bushfire from both a practical and an emotional perspective.

Next week’s show seeks to answer the question that most people living with low vision and blindness fin it so hard to answer…

“How much can you see?”

 

If you have a good way of answering that question, please let us know:
