Summary
  • In this collection of leading experts in the field address the problems of parents, intervenors, and professionals who work with people who have been dead-blind since birth or from a very early age
  • Individuals who are congentially deaf-blind face the same challenges as those who become deafblind later in life, but they have not had the same opportunity to develop the communications sills and a conceptual base needed to construct an understanding of the world. The contributors address identification of deafblindness, planning and intervention, development, family support, and education
