Deaf-Blind Awareness Week
Governor Gary Herbert declared the last week of June the Hellen Keller Deaf-Blind Awareness week.
USDB’s Susan Patten says, “We are definitely moving forward with educating politicians and the public on deaf-blindness. Other states are struggling with how to educate leadership and lawmakers in the importance of services for students with deaf-blindness. Here in Utah we are having discussions with the Governor. I’m so proud of the work we are doing!”
