We are proud to announce the publishment a book Zgodbe ljudi, ki poslušajo s srcem in gledajo z dlanmi: Živeti z gluhoslepoto (Stories of people who listen with their heart and watch with their palms: Living with Deafblindness). The book presents the individual stories of people with deafblindness and is of utmost importance for the Slovene territory, as it is the first author’s literary work signed by people with deafblindness. It will also be available in electronic format and audio, and later in other customized records.
This week we also announce the publishment of the book Haptični način sporazumevanja z ljudmi z gluhoslepoto (Haptic Method of Communicating with People with Deafblindness) which is the first time to present this type of communication with people with deafblindness in Slovenia. It was developed at The Deafblind Association of Slovenia DLAN and the Association of Interpreters for the Deafblind in Slovenia TAKTIL together with people with deafblindness.
Both books will be presented to the public at a press conference to be held on the European Deafblind Day, 22 October 2019, at the City Hall in Ljubljana.
