Deafblind International (DbI) Communication Network

For more than 10 years, the DbI Communication Network-an international workgroup of professionals-has investigated aspects of social interaction and early communication in congenitally deaf-blind individuals. Focus topics have included the development of social interaction and the development of a first vocabulary. The current focus of the group is to investigate how meaning is shared, conveyed, and established during communication. The group has developed a series of papers that are available on the Web: The series includes the following:
