The theme for the 2023 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education is Inspiration to Implementation. Join us as we explore innovations within deafblind education such as developing tactile learning strategies, evaluating students, and increasing recognition for qualified personnel. Together, we will discuss practical strategies including identifying infants and children who are deafblind and elevating the family voice in individual services and systems change. Take advantage of this experience by attending the optional, full-day Pre-Symposium, which features a track for attendees who are new to deafblind education and another for advanced practitioners.

More information on the 2023 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education, including a full agenda, will be available soon. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
