Resources for Consumers and Professionals during COVID-19

We have collected some resources we hope you find helpful in these unprecedented times. Included are some resources about COVID-19 in English, Spanish, and ASL. Additionally, many individuals are working remotely or trying to continue consumer learning from home, and we have included a variety of resources (some for consumers and some for professionals). This is by no means a comprehensive list, but we hope you will find something for you or your clients.

Learn more about Helen Keller Services' collaboration with The Feeling Through Experience

Inspired by a chance encounter with a deaf-blind man on the streets of Manhattan, writer/director Doug Roland wrote the script for a short film entitled Feeling Through.  The film is the first ever to cast a deaf-blind person in a co-leading role.  Doug partnered with HKNC in the making of this film and ultimately cast Robert Tarango, a former HKNC student and employee, in the role of the deaf-blind man.  Feeling Through tells the story of the unlikely connection between a teen in need and a deaf-blind man.  It is about the powerful experiences and meaningful relationships we can have and demonstrates that our capacity to connect transcends our differences.
