Spring 2003 Volume 8, No. 2

To Begin With...

we would like to mention the 2003 Texas Symposium on Deafblindness that took place February, 7-8 in Austin. It was a learning and networking experience for over 400 family members and professionals who have an interest in deafblindness. It is always a pleasure to be surrounded by that community of people. Those who contributed to the success of the symposium are too numerous to mention, but we would like to acknowledge those who were selected by a committee of their peers to receive awards at this year's luncheon. In recognition of outstanding contributions by a family member, Norman McCallum of Dallas received the Trailblazer Award. Recognized with the Intervener Award was Mercedes Brown of Killeen. Peggy Tarver, of TSD in Austin, was recognized for Excellence in Education. The Ann Silverrain Award, for a significant and long-term commitment to Texans who deafblind, was presented to Gay Bellamy of San Antonio.

As for SEE/HEAR, in the Winter edition we regrettably omitted a portion of the article, "Brothers & Sisters: Strategies for Supporting Siblings of Children who are Deaf-Blind." We apologize to our readers and California Deaf-Blind Services for the error. The web version of the Winter SEE/HEAR has been revised to include the complete article. You may access it at http://www.tsbvi.edu/Outreach/seehear/winter03/index.htm. We think we have some good articles for you this time. Hopefully they are all 100% here.
