March 1, 2021 – Kickoff Day for the 2021 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education
Yesterday, March 1, 2021, saw the kickoff of the 2021 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education. What a terrific start it was. We had representatives from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, India, Mexico, The Netherlands, Nicaragua, Spain, The United Kingdom, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands, not to mention from across the United States. It was great to get updates on the state of deafblind education from the perspective of family members and professionals working in various locations around the world. Today, we move into “inner space” with a presentation by Dr. Judy Cameron from the Center on the Developing Child Harvard University talking about the impact of stress and building resiliency. This is something we all need to know more about in a world struggling from the impact of COVID 19. Can’t wait to hear what she has to share.
