Deafblind, a UK-based charity, has confirmed that it will be supporting next month’s Naidex exhibition.
At the event, Liz Duncan, the charity’s training and research manager, will speak on behalf of the organisation.
Ahead of the event, Deafblind explained how delegates attending the talk will hopefully gain a greater awareness of the breadth of the communication we all use every day, as well as learning a new approach to body awareness.
Commenting, Duncan said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in communicating with people who are deafblind to explore options for communicating beyond words.”
Adding: “I’m looking forward to what I hope will be a really inspiring session”.
Duncan is an experienced learning facilitator and researcher in the deafblind sector and is plso part of an international research team looking into the tactile transitions experienced by people who are deafblind and, for the first time in the UK, will present some of that work at Naidex.
The talk will take place from 11.00 -11.30am on March 18 in Theatre 7.
