NCDB website tours for families were a success!
Based on a suggestion from the brilliant deaf-blind project family specialists, on September 27 NCDB organized 3 tours for families of the NCDB website. Elizabeth Bell did a phenomenal job of explaining all of the features of the NCDB website – how to create a profile, join an initiative, search for information and share. We had families from 16 states join and learn together! A recording of the webinar can be found here: https://nationaldb.org/library/page/2628
When asked at the end of the webinar what additional topics parents would be interested in learning more about, some of the ideas shared were: Transition, Interveners, Family Organizations & Networking Opportunities, Literacy, Communication 101, Etiologies that Cause Deaf-Blindness, Options for Young Adults who are Deaf-Blind, and Wills & Estate Planning. As we begin to craft plans for future webinars, I’d love to hear from you about additional topics of interest. Feel free to add your thoughts here in the comments section of this forum. I will gather them in the weeks ahead and get planning to give you the information you feel is of highest priority.
A HUGE thanks to the family specialists for rallying families to join us on September 27 as well as to the families who took time out of their busy lives to come and learn!
