The largest event about deafblindness ever held in the UK recently attracted more than 900 delegates...
Hosted by national charity Deafblind UK the virtual event saw dual sensory loss experts from across the world run sessions around the theme of Embracing Change.
Talks focussed on accessibility, support provision, mental health, academic research, workplace inclusion and many real-life stories.
“We are immensely proud to be leading the conversation around deafblindness in the UK,” said Steve Conway, CEO of Deafblind UK.
“This event brought people together from all walks of life and from across the world to talk about a shared interest – embracing change with dual sensory loss.
“Whether you live with deafblindness, support people who do, or have a professional or personal interest in this area then change is constant. Our expert panel of speakers explored all aspects of the constant change, offering insights into the emotional, practical and linguistic impact, helping us to normalise the conversation around deafblindness.”
Deafblind UK helps people who are deafblind to live with their condition and to build their confidence and independence, offering learning and development options, which include awareness talks, webinars and tailored learning days.
