2020-2021 Deaf-Blindness Webinar Series
January 14, 2021 from 3:00 - 5:00 PM
Session Three: The Hidden Sense
Presented by David Brown, David will share how the ‘other’ senses, the proprioceptive sense and the vestibular sense, are particularly important. Knowing about these senses, how they work, what might happen if they are not working properly, and what to do about it, can make a surprising difference to the development of functional vision and hearing. A consideration of the functions of ALL our senses can help us to understand why we self-stimulate, and also understand what any child’s self-stimulation behaviors tell about their difficulties and needs.

Session Five: Self-Determination
Presented by Kathee Scoggin. Self-determination is about each child’s ability for goal setting and self-advocacy. This session will address the first ways a child develops self-determination and how that leads to the more advanced stages of self-determination.
