What is Deafblindness?
Deafblindness is a combination of sight and hearing loss that affects a person's ability to communicate, access information and get around. It's also sometimes called "dual sensory loss" or "multi-sensory impairment".
The role of a Deafblind Communicator Guide
To enable Deafblind people to make informed decisions by ensuring information is delivered using the Deafblind person’s preferred communication method(s), such as British Sign Language, Deafblind Manual, hands-on-signing etc.. In their role, they will also escort dual-sensory impaired people from their homes to the destination of their choice.
