Between November 24th and November 25th, 2022, the Deafblind Association of Slovenia DLAN, as the part of the Erasmus+ project: Learning by touch, we once again hosted an expert in the field of deafblindness in Croatia, from the Croatian Association of the Deafblind DODIR (Hrvatski savez gluhoslijepih osoba DODIR), dr. Sanja Tarczay, who is also the President of World Federation of the Deafblind (WFDB). As part of the project, further education and training took place with the aim of strengthening and perfecting the competences for working with people with deafblindness.
In addition to lectures, workshops and other joint activities with the aim of ensuring even better quality work by the staff who are in daily contact with people with deafblindness and volunteers, as well as a high-quality response to the diverse needs of people with deafblindness, we also spent time getting to know each other, connecting and sharing stories and current news with members of the DLAN Association.
We truly thank Dr. Sanja Tarczay and all the other participants for their contribution to education for even better work with the deafblind in the future. We are happy and grateful that you shared your knowledge and experiences with us. A big thank you also to everyone else who participated in the project in any way and contributed their share.
