Highlights from the DB Forum at #CEC2015 from Deafblind Committee Chair, Dr. Amy Parker:

Please find the attached community forum report from our meeting in San Diego, which included guests from two national parent organizations, Clara, from NFADB, and Lisa, from the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation. Although our forum was small, we had some nice and more in-depth discussion than sometimes happens in a large group.  Our committee specifically was reaching out to national family organizations in DB to gain input and to seek direction, as this was something we identified at our community forum meeting in Philadelphia. Special thanks to representatives from the DB Coalition who provided a handout about the Cogswell-Macy bill (attached).  This followed Mark Richert's and Rebecca Sheffield's presentation at our larger membership meeting from the AFB Leadership conference Thursday evening.
