Come learn about service dog etiquette, disabilities, and inclusion with Isabella and O’hara!
Isabella is a college student and author who happens to be legally blind. Legal blindness means anyone who has a visual acuity of 20/200, or worse, even with corrections. Isabella specializes in helping people learn about service dogs, disabilities, and how to create a more inclusive world.
Isabella & her guide dog O’hara have over half a million followers on TikTok where they share videos of their experiences navigating life together. Isabella’s goal is to spread diversity and inclusion by discussing the roles of service dogs, service dog etiquette, and disabilities.
This event will focus on service dog etiquette and how service dogs play a role in the lives of their disabled handlers. We will also have a Q&A time at the end of the event.
At the age of 8-years-old, Isabella began losing her eye sight to a disease known as Stargardt’s Disease. Stargardt’s is a juvenile form of macular degeneration, that progressively takes the central vision. Just like all disabilities, everyone’s experience with their disease is different. Isabella began to read large print books, and use a white cane for mobility. During high school, she attended a school for the blind in Watertown, Massachusetts. Isabella is now a senior college student studying biology – with her guide dog O’hara at her side.
