Suzan Barlow joined A Shared Vision as an Early Intervention Teacher of the Visually Impaired in August 2018. She also works part time as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired and Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist for the Denver Public School district.
Like many of A Shared Vision’s teachers, Suzan enjoys providing vision services in the classroom and in the home. “Both give me the opportunity to work one on one with a child; however, with services in the home you are in a close working relationship with the families, giving support in the very important early years of their child’s development,” explains Suzan. “I can provide strategies around everyday routines and activities, like mealtime or playtime.”
When Suzan isn’t supporting a family from A Shared Vision, she likes to spend time with her family and friends, walking, biking and reading. She also helps her son with his real estate business because "It's fun! If your heart and head are there, you're helping people. And that's who I am," says Suzan.
