I am taking a free course through UNF this week from the National Center for the Deaf and Blind.
The low incidence and wide diversity affects all involved. The child first, the family, the school, D...octors and everyone in contact with the child. As a teacher and principal of a Florida School System. The family is learning how and what to do to help their child, and then has the responsibility of educating others about their child. Although, I will say as a teacher I have learned more from the parents and child to assist me in educating. The parents are learning and grieving too.

The school system is not prepared at all how to work with the child or what is needed for the child. They are pulling information from what they may know from other similar situations and they are not always helpful. The school system provides what it can based on the statutes and laws. This does not always benefit the child.

The children and families may feel left out, like they are the only one. They will not have support they need.

#DBFamilyFunFacts Never underestimate a day of fun with your Dad and Sister. Hannah loved all the spills and turns at the theme park the family visited. Advice from her Mom and Dad is don’t be afraid to let your child try new things, you may find that you are more afraid than your child.

But that’s not the only reason the Network of the Americas conference, whi...ch will take place in Hyannis, Massachusetts this April, is so unique. Here’s what else you need to know about the year’s can’t-miss event for the deafblind community:

Fast Approaching-Don't Miss Out!
Deaf-Blind Interpreting Seminar at HKNC March 15-16, 2018.
Get your applications in soon!

Transcript: Hey Everyone! This is... Maricar. I want to make sure you are all aware that HKNC’s Deaf-Blind Interpreting Seminar is right around the corner!! I am THRILLED to be involved with this training. This is a truly unique experience in that both deaf-blind professionals, as well as seasoned interpreters, will be leading the training. This way the participants will have the opportunity to get both perspectives. Our highly-qualified interpreting team will share their knowledge and insight from their years of working with the deaf-blind population in various settings. AND our deaf-blind presenters, myself included, will share our experiences from working with a variety of interpreters in all sorts of situations. However, this is not your typical seminar. Don’t think you will be sitting in a chair listening to a presenter all day. In our seminar, you will be actively involved in hands-on experiences - meeting and working with a variety of deaf-blind individuals. At the completion of this training, participants will receive 2.2 RID CEU’s. For more information click on the link below. Hope to see you soon.

#DBFamilyFunFacts "Hannah is tearing it up on the dance floor at a friend's wedding," writes Hannah's mom Samantha. "Her favorite part was having her dress twirl on the dance floor and the wooden floor helped her feel the rhythm! Way to swing, Hannah!"

#DBFamilyFunFacts "On our recent family road trip to The Grand Canyon, Liam had the opportunity to experience their hands-on exhibit of the various types of rocks found in the canyon," writes Liam's mom Jodi. "While he was not able to understand the different names of the rocks, we used it as a teaching tool. I had him feel two different rocks and asked him if they were the same or different, bigger or smaller, etc. He saw it as a game and had a lot of fun. Since the Grand Canyon is so visual, it was a way to make it more accessible to him and helped him enjoy our visit."
