Deafblind Awareness Week 2017


DeafBlind Awareness week runs from 25 June to 1 July, 2017.

DeafBlindness or dual sensory experience is as unique and diverse as our learners.  Our young people can have varying degrees of vision and hearing; however the combined effect can present distinctive challenges with access, communication, orientation and mobility and connection to the wider world.  Raising awareness is the first step to understanding.
