Why have a conference?
Between November 23 - 25, 2020, Sense International Romania is organising the International Conference DEAFBLINDNESS DURING THE PANDEMIC.
After more than half a year since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world in which we live has changed and is still changing. People with deafblindness - children, adults or elderly - as well as their families, have found themselves facing more marginalisation and neglect, they are more vulnerable and more exposed to double isolation than ever, during the crisis.
Together with international and national speakers, we want to learn how the pandemic influences the process of communication for people with deafblindness, in what way can technology be of support, what are the challenges but also the opportunities during this time.
Our conference is addressed to a wide variety of public, people who in their work or in their daily lives interact with people with deafblindness:
- teachers, special education teachers, educators;
- social workers;
- other interested specialists.
When and where?
The conference will take place from 23 to 25 November 2020, between 14.00-17.00.
The event will take place online via ZOOM platform.
There will be plenary presentations held by international and national speakers, as well as workshops with a more practical approach. The proceedings will be both in Romanian and English language. No translation will be provided.
The conference final programme will be available on www.surdocecitate.ro
What are the costs?
The participation is free of charge for a limited number of participants. However, any donation received from participants is welcomed and will have a decisive contribution to supporting children and young people with deafblindness and to organising similar events in the future.
Thank you in advance!
