I'm passionate about identifying, disseminating, and supporting the use of info that builds on our Deaf-Blind network assets; seeking out the most efficient and effective solutions to the common barriers we continue to face, as we struggle collectively to have well supported families and qualified personnel around each and every child we strive to identify and see served well.
I celebrate the partnerships this field offers that are a constant reminder that we are not alone in this effort.
I count it a privilege to have been drawn over the past few years into partnerships in Uganda, witnessing once again how progress can be made through collaboration, even with very limited resources.
