A person living with dual sensory loss has difficulty accessing information and pursuing educational, vocational, recreational and social goals.
Deafblindness is a unique and separate disability from deafness and blindness. An individual with combined losses of both hearing and vision requires specialized services, including adaptive communication methods.
With your help, we can help empower members of the deafblind community to be more independent, free from barriers.
