National Federation of the Blind
The NFB Deaf-Blind Division is very sad to announce the passing of Burnell Brown. Burnell is the former President of the division and also served as Treasurer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Burnell's family.
Do you suffer from combined hearing and vision loss? Are you concerned about the plight of those who struggle with a combined loss of hearing and vision? Do you want to know more about the issues of Deaf-Blindness?
The National Federation of the Blind Deaf-Blind Division is working hard to raise awareness of the issues of Deaf-Blindness, to educate the public, and advocate for the needs of the Deaf-Blind.
The real problem of Deaf-Blindness is a misunderstanding of term Deaf-Blind". So many mistakenly believe that this disability only applies to those with severe to total hearing and vision loss. Instead, people who are Deaf-Blind have a wide range of hearing and vision loss. Many may not even realize that they can be identified as "Deaf-Blind".
