"The Texas Deafblind Project has been our lifeline as we gear up for our daughter to start school next year."


~Chris, Parent


FamilyLetter-PreschoolerMany families with children from 2 to 5 years old find the move from home-based to school-based service is a big transition. This includes learning a different way to support your child's learning while working with professionals in a much larger setting. You have new questions and new relationships to build with school staff. How can I fully participate in my child's education? What do I need to know to do this? How can I connect with other families going through similar challenges?

The Texas Deafblind Project offers free support, information, and training statewide with a focus on issues for children with combined vision and hearing loss. As a part of an annual Child Count report collected for the Texas Education Agency, you gave permission to share your family's contact information so that we could connect with you.

Our project is here to support you along your child's educational journey from birth until age 22. Included with this letter are a few resources

for families of preschoolers who have the combination vision and hearing loss. We would be happy to offer you additional information and support that is specific to your family.

Please connect with us at http://www.tsbvi.edu/family-db to:

• Learn about additional resources for your child and your family
• Make sure we have your preferred contact information
• Get added to our mailing list for news and opportunities of interest to your family.
• Complete a short 5 minute survey about your current services

Our project staff has experience and knowledge about combined vision and hearing impairments. We hope to have the opportunity to offer our support to you.

You can connect with Edgenie Bellah, our Family Engagement Specialist, at (512) 206-9423 or to learn more about the different supports available to you.
