    Post-Training Action Planning:
    After this training, you may want to just ponder for a while! If you decide to establish a site(s) for QPVI in your region, we will be happy to set up conversations to help you get started, to work out logistics and help you plan, including what level of support you may want from TSBVI. Please keep in mind that conducting the QPVI program is a complex and sometimes intense process - we typically recommend pairing with another experienced facilitator in order to implement this program.

  2. 2019 Texas Symposium on DeafBlindness

    The theme for the 2019 Texas Symposium on DeafBlindness is “Resonance”. Resonance is defined as being deep, full, and reverberating, as well as having the ability to evoke, suggest, or echo images, memories, and emotions.

    Resonance is an integral foundation of developing security and attachment for early communicators in the teaching methodologies of Dr. Jan van Dijk. His resonance strategies lead students to interact with others emphasizing the importance of relationship building.

    The 2019 Symposium will include discussion on a variety of topics and offer an in-depth look at issues affecting the education, support, and parenting of children and youth who are DeafBlind. If you want to take full advantage of this experience, but you are new to DeafBlindness, consider attending the full-day, 2019 Symposium Pre-Conference Event to get a basic foundation to build upon during the main Symposium sessions.

  3. 2019 Pre-Symposium: The Basics of Understanding DeafBlindness in Children and Youth

    Because seating is limited, we ask that individuals who have more than a basic background in DeafBlindness to weigh the value of attending before registering.

    The content of this workshop will be a day of “DeafBlindness 101”, with information geared toward parents, educators, and associated professionals who are new to the world of DeafBlindness.
