During this period we are developing an online course in the field of deafblindness. Over the years, we have organized many such courses for specialists working with children and young people with deafblindness. However, in order to reach as many professionals as possible, we decided last year to develop an online initiation course and a specialization course in this field. With financial support from Sense International UK and the Nelumbo Foundation, we hope to start the course in 2021.
Another good news for those interested is an event that will be held online from 23 to 25 November 2020, when we organize the International Conference "Deafblindness during the Pandemic".
With the input of international and national speakers, we want to know how the pandemic has influenced the communication process for people with deafblindness, how technology can support them, what are the challenges but also the opportunities during this period. The conference is aimed at a wide variety of public, those who in their work or in their daily lives interact with people with deafblindness: parents, teachers, special education teachers, psychologists, educators, doctors, social workers, physiotherapists, students, NGO representatives, other specialists in related fields.
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 organizing similar events in the future.
