May 19, 2021 - Check Out Spring 2021 Horizons
There are 52 deafblind projects in the United States; services cover each state plus Puerto Rico , the Virgin Islands, and many of the Pacific Islands such as Samoa and Guam. Many of these state projects offer free newsletters and other products that are worth checking out. If you want to see a listing with links to all the websites, go to the National Center on Deaf-Blindness.
In the Spring edition of the Horizons, from the Illinois Project Reach Deaf-Blind Services, Faith Rosenshein Young includes a wonderful summary of the 2021 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education presentations. Be sure to check it out!
If you are looking for resources such as newsletters, fact sheets and other publications, be sure to explore these project sites and NCDB regularly. New materials are continually being added.
If you are a parent or educator needing information or support for a child or young adult who is deafblind, these projects should be your first stop! In addition to print products, many of these projects provide both virtual and face-to-face workshops and conferences, as well as technical assistance services to families and school programs.
