Deaf-blind Reality: Living the Life (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


For individuals who are both deaf and blind, even the most commonplace of tasks can pose immense challenges. This unique collection of interviews with twelve deaf-blind individuals from around the globe - editor Scott M. Stoffel among them - paints an honest and compelling picture of the overlooked realities of living with multiple physical disabilities. Rather than heralding singular achievements that distinguish the few, "Deaf-Blind Reality" celebrates daily hard-won successes that allow disabled individuals to lead productive and autonomous, yet socially engaged lives.
