Module 2: Early Intervention for Children Who Are Deafblind

Parent Perspectives

An important part of understanding and gaining practical skills for working with infants and toddlers who are deafblind is understanding parents’ perspectives.

You briefly met Kari Harbath and Madeline Cheney in the lessons for this module. In the following short videos, you’ll hear more from them about what it is like to be the mother of a young child who is deafblind. Listen as they share their experiences during the critical years of early intervention and the teamwork that’s involved.
