Price: $29.99

This course provides functional and practical information on how to best communicate with individuals who are deaf-blind.  The various communication modalities used by individuals who are deaf-blind are addressed including; sign language, speech, text and alternative methods of communication such as print on palm. The possible accommodations and modifications that may be needed for each are listed and described. Much of the content in this course is addressed in HKNC’s course entitled: Communicating with Individuals Who are Deaf-Blind. This course is unique because it is presented in ASL with voice interpretation and is geared toward direct providers and people who interact and support deaf-blind people. The content in this course was developed by HKNC. However, the presenter, Christopher Tester, a Certified Deaf Interpreter (CDI), has contributed by modifying the content to ensure optimal accessibility.  This course, like all of our courses, is voice interpreted.  Captions and transcripts are available in Spanish and English.
