Embracing Family Perspectives: The Transformation that has Moved a Network Forward

Session A49 (C20)

During this highly interactive session, participants will engage with the processes that the National Center on Deaf-Blindness has established to guide state deaf-blind projects in examining their project capacity to address family needs and inform their project activities. By prioritizing family leadership, the national deaf-blind network has increased their focus on equity and addressing the cultural and linguistic needs of families. Enhanced partnerships with family organizations have created synergies in services at all levels.
