Panel discussion: "Hot Topics in Disability Support: A Deaf Blind Community"
Over the past several years, Gallaudet University has seen an increase in the enrollment of students with varying degrees of vision impairments. Some are visually impaired while others are deaf and blind. At Gallaudet, as with other institutions of higher learning, these individuals often face barriers not only in the classroom, but also during extra-curricular activities and internships.
A panel of Gallaudet students and alumni who are deaf blind will share their experiences and offer insight and possible solutions to the unique challenges they face every day on Tuesday, November 19 from 12:30 to 1:50 p.m. in the JSAC Multipurpose Room.
