Shifting Your Perspective: Lessons and Insights from Spanish-Speaking Families

What’s it like when you speak Spanish and are raising a child with deaf-blindness in the US? In this webinar, hear from a dynamic panel of Spanish-speaking families who’ll discuss their personal experiences, including their struggles and successes. Find out what it’s like learning the diagnosis, accessing services, and locating support, and hear what they want other families and providers to know. Importantly, this webinar offers a unique perspective for participants: It will be conducted in Spanish with English captions and live English interpreters. 

Note that this webinar serves to frame our thinking and lay the groundwork for learning and discussion at the NCDB Virtual Summit Sessions in July and the in-person Summit in January 2022.

Registration is required for attendance.
