Rehabilitation contact, Norges Blindeforbund (Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted)
Truls had a permanent job and was just settling down with his partner and 2-year-old son. All of a sudden, within a few minutes, it was dark. In several ways. He became blind.
He had some tough years in and out of the hospital. Finally, he discovered the rehabilitation offer at the Norges Blindeforbund, and his spark slowly but surely returned. Today, he claims that he is where he’s supposed to be.
On the programme
Truls will tell you about his experience of becoming blind as an adult and the work he now does for the Norges Blindeforbund. He’ll be on stage together with Inga-Britt Kjellevold Haugen, who will talk about the research studies of the association (in Norwegian). You can read more on the programme page.
