Information About Deafblindness.
The Deafblind Manual Alphabet.
A Person with a Red and White Cane is a deafblind person.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to A-Z to Deafblindness, and to thank you for visiting my modest and humble little Web Page. So come on in and make yourself at home, you will be made very welcome.
My name is James Gallagher and I am deafblind myself. This site is here to try and offer some help to Blind or deaf people, and especially deafblind people, and those who provide specialised services for those who are deafblind. A-Z to Deafblindness is also here, to make people more aware about deafblindness.
Within this website you will be able to learn the Deafblind Manual Alphabet and, the Two-Handed Manual Alphabet used by sighted Deaf people. Its up to you where you wish to go. If you wish to learn the Deafblind Manual Alphabet then there are pages on this website for you to do so.
There is the Archives page, where I am trying to collect some of the best documents about the condition of deafblindness that there is on the Net. There is also information about Braille, Moon, The Cochlear Implant, Retinal Implant Project, a full text description of the ASL alphabet, the causes of deafblindness, some very interesting articles about deafness and deafblindness, and also the addresses of organszations for deafblind people throughout the world as well as dates for conferences and courses about deafblindness throughout this little world of ours.
Also of course pages with links to some of the best web sites on the Net which have information about the above topics. I hope you find this site interesting and knowledgeable. These pages will never be the best on the Net about deafblindness, but I try to provide good and clear information to those who wish to find out more about deafblindness and those who have the condition.
I hope that you will enjoy your time browsing around in A-Z to Deafblindness. If you know, or have, a website that you think should be included within this web page then please just let me know, and I will be more than happy to add a link to your pages.
If you have any trouble with these pages in any way then please let me know. I will be happy to help you in any way that I can. Remember I am just an e-mail away. If you wish to get in touch with me my e-mail address is below, and please feel free to do so.
