This is picture taken at the 2006 DBMAT Family Conference.  A deafblind child is relaxing while riding on the back of a child care worker.  She has a determined look as she trudges ahead.

Volunteers, who are family members of people who are deaf blind, with experience working with schools, government offices, and service providers, are available to assist families of people who are deafblind.  If there is no Regional Coordinator in your Region, or you want general information about deafblindness, feel free to contact our President, or Texas School for the Blind Family Support Specialist, whose numbers are also listed below.
