COME JOIN THE NATIONAL COALITION ON DEAFBLINDNESS
FIRST CAPITOL HILL ADVOCACY DAY!
- Have you ever wished policy makers in Washington had a better understanding of the educational needs of children who are Deafblind?
- Have you wondered how you can make a difference in decisions made at the Federal level?
- Would you like to promote better outcomes for all children who are Deafblind?
This is an opportunity for us to combine our efforts to bring visibility about “what works” for children who are deafblind. We encourage parents, teachers, interveners, professionals and others to participate. Also joining the event will be representatives from the American
Foundation for the Blind, Council of Schools for the Blind, National Association of the Deaf, and
Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools & Programs for the Deaf.
WHEN: March 2, 2016
WHERE: Washington, DC
WHY: To share information with our elected representatives about deafblindness and the Coalition’s key legislative priority, H.R. 3535, the Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act.
