Partners in Action
NCDB and NFADB have joined forces to raise awareness on the critical importance of providing individualized services to children and adults who are deaf-blind! As part of a yearlong action campaign, a series of webinars will concentrate on three specific aspects of individualized services: the role of interveners, improving access to information through technology and the impact individualized services can have on quality of life issues for the individual who is deaf-blind.
The first of these webinars, Looking to the Future of Deaf-Blind Services and the Role of the Intervener was just held on February 12th. If you missed it, you can view a recording at https://nationaldb.org/library/page/2372
Let’s make time for more conversation!
The NCDB/NFADB action campaign is all about raising awareness for the need for individualized services. To help accomplish this, we will be hosting an open forum discussion after each webinar. Please join the discussion! We want and need to hear your ideas!
1. What do you think is the best way to get the word out to parents and family members
on the role of an intervener?
2. For the parent or family that knows very little about interveners, what information would you recommend they receive first?
3. The NCDB/NFADB series of webinars is one way to reach a broad audience but what other approaches can be used?
