2021 Texas Symposium on Deafblind Education
Teacher of Students Who are Deafblind: Navigating a New World
Providing appropriate instruction for any student who is deafblind is challenging since each student’s access needs are truly unique. This year’s Symposium will dive deep to examine why students in Texas need access to trained teachers of students who are deafblind and interveners. Please join us as we explore the issues and answers to providing quality programming for these individuals and support to educational teams including families and school staff.
COVID has forced us to make this event “virtual”, and that has allowed us to partner with Deafblind International (DbI) Network of the Americas and the National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB). This has given us the opportunity to include the National Center on Deaf-Blindness, Canadian Deafblind Association National, Perkins International, and other organizations from various places in the Western Hemisphere to make this an international event. This collaboration promises to make this year’s Symposium a truly spectacular event. As Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
