About the Website

Deafblind Information has been established to collate information from around Australia, and internationally, to ensure that individuals living with a combination of vision and hearing impairments, their families and support members, as well as the professionals and service providers, have an accessible, web-based central resource available to them.

senses-building-400pxIt is an innovative site with access to up to date information including:Deafblindness, Upon Diagnosis, Equipment and Assistive Devices,Educational and Employment Opportunities, News and Personal Stories.

This site is provided by Senses Australia which is a charitable, not for profit organisation providing disability support services to people of all ages throughout Western Australia. Senses Australia’s unique service specialty is the provision of services to people who are deafblind (http://www.senses.org.au/). Deafblind Information is managed by the Senses’ Deafblind Service team who can be contacted on admin@deafblindinformation.org.au.

The development of the website has been supported by Andrew and Nicola Forrest through their Australian Charities Trust and the State Government of Western Australia through the Disability Services Commission.
