Para los bebes, niños y jóvenes adultos que tienen una combinación de
pérdida auditiva y visual o sordo-ceguera es instrumental que sus padres
comiencen con ciertas rutinas a una edad temprana, para prepararlos a las
distintas transiciones que los estudiantes van a tener a lo largo de su
carrera académica y eventualmente en su transición a la vida adulta. Estar
enterados con anticipación de cómo manejar estos cambios, tanto de lugar,
gente o de ambiente entre otras cosas puede ser beneficial para nuestros
hijos. Por esa razón NCDB, NFADB, NYDBC y CDBS les ofrece esta sesión en el
tema de “Transición” a las familias de habla hispana que tienen un niño que
es sordo-ciego. Esta sesión va a ser interactiva y ustedes pueden hacer
preguntas que se contestarán al final de la presentación. Si desean recibir
una copia de la presentación, favor comunicarse con Clara
clara.berg@xxxxxxxxxxx o Myrna medinam66@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

*TRANSITIONS IN THE LIFESPAN OF A STUDENT WHO IS DEAF-BLIND* *A National
Webinar for Spanish Speaking Parents*

*Co-Sponsored by*
*National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB)*

*National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB) New York Deaf-Blind
Collaborative (NYDBC)*
*California Deaf-Blind Services (CDBS)*

For babies, children and young adults who have a combined hearing and
vision loss, it is instrumental that parents begin certain routines at a
very early age to prepare them for the many transitions they will
experience throughout their educational years and eventually in their
transition to adult life. Being aware ahead of time concerning how to
manage those changes, i.e. location, people or environment, among other
issues, will be beneficial for our children. For this reason, NCDB, NFADB,
NYDBC and CDBS is offering this session on “Transitions” to families who
are Spanish speaking and have a child who is deaf-blind. This is going to
be an interactive session; you will be able to pose questions that will be
answered at the end of the presentation. If you would like to receive a
copy of the PowerPoint presentation, please contact Clara at
clara.berg@xxxxxxxxxxx or Myrna, at medinam66@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
