Our Partners

COVID has forced us to make this event “virtual”, and that has allowed us a great opportunity to partner with Deafblind International (DbI) Network of the Americas and the National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB). This has given us the opportunity to include the National Center on Deaf-Blindness, Canadian Deafblind Association National, Perkins International, and other organizations from various places in the Western Hemisphere to make this an international event. This collaboration promises to make this year’s Symposium a truly spectacular event. As Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

We are extremely grateful to our partners and sponsors who have helped bring about this Symposium. Many have provided funds for interpreters and accessibility. Others have stepped forward as speakers, panelists and facilitators. All have contributed their energy and enthusiasm in creating the events that make up the 2021 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education!
