Early Identification of Deaf-Blindness Webinar Series
The Montana Deaf-Blind Project is pleased to announce our free two-part Early identification of Deaf-Blindness webinar series presented by nationally-renowned expert Dr. Susan M. Bashinski.
Experiences that occur during the earliest years of life have a profound effect on a child's ability to learn, move, and interact with others. This is especially true for children with combined vision and hearing loss—known as deaf-blindness—whose physical, communicative, cognitive, social, and emotional developmental domains are deeply intertwined. Because the impact on learning is exponentially greater for combined vision and hearing loss than for vision or hearing loss alone, early identification, followed by early intervention services from individuals who understand the unique impact of deaf-blindness, is essential.
