The NC Deaf Blind Project recently released their summer newsletter. We always look forward to this chronicle that educates about local happenings as well as nation wide information that is relevant to us and Jacob. 

In this edition to the newsletter, NC Deaf Blind Project highlights the Hellen Keller National Center’s (HKNC)Deaf Blind Immersion Seminar (DBIS). In this section Rowena Barker writes about her families experience with visiting the center- where they were able to do skill building immersion projects, learn advocating skills, work on resumes and get to know their child in a whole new light. We, also, had the pleasure of participating in this program with Jacob several years ago and cannot say anything but good praises for this service! During the time their, Jacob was able to test out different “jobs” to see where his skill fit and what he enjoyed. He was able to work at a local hospital where he folded clothes, swept floors and helped with trash (of course). We were able to learn so much from our time her as caregivers as well, Jacob is so much more able then we sometimes give him credit for. If your loved one would benefit from a program, the newsletter gives all the information needed to learn all more. 

Along with this service highlight, you will also find upcoming events in North Carolina, resources for you and your child, and Pintrest board recommendations!
