Fall 2022!

ILDBP's 10/1/2022 Bushels of Fun event provided an opportunity for families to connect with other families of children with combined vision/hearing loss. Families learned some ASL signs with a DeafBlind mentor, enjoyed seasonal treats, a straw maze, a farm petting zoo, crafts, and fall photo fun, plus they had plenty of opportunities to practice new ASL signs with friends!
