Dear members and appreciated participants,
the period we are currently in is different from what we were used to so far. With certainty, this period is an opportunity for us to look at ourselves, to set goals again (small and big steps), to do everything for which there has not been enough time so far…
We would like to share with you some of the glimpses, thoughts, anecdotes that some of our members have provided to us from their home environment in these particular circumstances. This is to encourage members of the association and to raise awareness among the general public about how people with deafblindness spend their quarantine days.
One of the members of the Association DLAN, Mrs. Jožica Atelšek, decided to study Lorm alphabet with her assistant Tomaž during a quarantine. This is one way of communicating with a person with deafblindness. For safety and preventative reasons, they learn via distance via Skype. Mrs. Jožica wishes us all to stay home and look after ourselves.
