FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Joe Naulty, President
National Deaf-Blind Division
Reminder of two events designed to educate and improve life for
current and future NFB members! This is for families with young
children, young adults, men and women of all ages above. Dual
sensory loss does not discriminate. It will impact the lives of
people of all races. Dual sensory loss does not care if you are well
or under educated, rich or poor. This may manifest itself at birth
or with seniors. Showing up together or one at a time, it has no
preferences. Remember as with vision loss, the entire family is
impacted by a dual sensory diagnosis.
This is not written to scare but to inform you that those who have
dual sensory loss have survive and are waiting to demonstrate how
this too is NOT the end of the world. Come hear it for yourselves
and as a newly educated leader you can be prepared for those who come
to you for help. You will not only share information you will also
be aware of the issues the deafblind faces everyday of their lives.
Wednesday July 2 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Come and learn and help educate both the sighted public and other
disability groups. You'll be glad you did!
