FamilyLetter-LookingTowardsAdulthoodDear Family,

As your child is becoming a young adult, you may feel unprepared for this part of your family's journey. You may not know what questions to ask about the transition beyond school, or where to turn. Many families who are preparing for transition out of school share similar challenges:

  • figuring out whole new service systems
  • facing uncertainty about what the future might hold for your young adult
  • searching for how to make your child's vision for his or her life a reality.

Rest assured you are not alone – others are standing by, ready and willing to help you help your child prepare for adult life.

The Texas Deafblind Project offers free support, information and training statewide with a focus on issues for young adults 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. We want you to know that we are here to support you as your young adult prepares for living in the adult world.

We've included a packet of useful resources and can 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, compassion and knowledge about challenges and solutions for individuals with deafblindness. If we haven't had the opportunity to work with you before, we welcome the chance to do so. Please connect with Edgenie Bellah, our Family Engagement Specialist, by calling 512-206-9225 or email to .
