Resources for Individuals with Dual Sensory Impairment
If you work with any individuals who are deaf and/or blind, here is a great website of information from the Nevada Dual Sensory Impairment Project. There is a huge collection of tip sheets on topics such as Tolerating Touch, Light Sensitivity, How to Interact with Individuals with Dual Sensory Impairment, Visual Adaptations, How to Keep Items from Rolling Off of Wheelchair Tray, Grasping Aids, Easy Adaptations for the Home and Classroom and many more. Almost all of the hands outs are also translated into Spanish. What great free resources!
