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.

We are also pleased to announce that our second Parent Grief Support Group will begin January 10, 2018 and continue for 5 consecutive months. These web-based, peer-to-peer meetings allow parents who have lost a child an opportunity to process their grief and learn coping strategies that have helped others. The meetings will be held on Wednesday evenings, twice per month. We are asking interested parents to commit to the entire 5-month series. Enrollment is free.

Dates and Times

Meetings will be on the dates listed below at 5:30 PT/6:30 MT/7:30 CT/8:30 ET for 90 minutes.
