Description

Proper identification is a critical first step in supporting individuals with combined vision and hearing loss to better access their homes, schools, and communities. This presentation will include subset data from the annual National Deaf-Blind Child Count to highlight the issues related to under-identification. Resources and strategies to partner in addressing this undercount and ensuring reform efforts are purposefully inclusive of individuals with deaf-blindness will be discussed.
