Grief Support for Families of Children with Deaf-Blindness
With great thoughtfulness, the National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB), the National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB), and state deaf-blind project personnel have been collecting grief resources for families related to child loss. As you can imagine, death is a very traumatic experience for families. When coupled with a secondary loss of connection to the deaf-blind community, healing can be even more challenging.
To help, we’ve created a list of resources where family members can obtain information and support: https://nationaldb.org/wiki/page/10/753
Next, we are excited to announce the launch of a Parent and Guardian Grief Support Group. Beginning May 3, 2017 and continuing for 5 consecutive months, we will be offering a series of web-based, peer-to-peer meetings where parents who have lost a child will have an opportunity to process their grief and learn about coping strategies that have helped others. The meetings will be held on Wednesday evenings, twice per month (a second session may be offered on Thursday evenings, if needed). We are asking interested parents and guardians to commit to the entire 5-month series. Enrollment is free.
