What is it about?
Our team is presenting the process of developing an on-line community on practice that serves the specific needs of professionals that work with persons affected by deafblindness. Specifically, this resources in bilingual in English and French, to serve its Canadian context.
Why is it important?
Deafblindess is considered a low-incidence impairment; however, considerable resources are required to serve this population. Professionals with experience and expertise in deafblindness remain rare and at times geographically isolated. Through this on-line resource, they can connect, exchange ideas and form a community.
