"1 year."
How has being Deafblind impacted your life?
"[Being Deafblind] has been very challenging."

How has intervention impacted your life?

"Without intervention, I would be in a very awkward situation. Having them has helped me during medical appointments. They (Intervenors) have helped me with communication and to know what is going on around me. I don’t know where I would be without my Intervenors; they help me with legal matters, and doctors. It would be really hard without them."

What would you like to tell other people about Deafblindness or intervention?

"It [Intervention] is very helpful to someone who needs it."

Why is Deafblind awareness important to you?

"[Deafblind awareness] is so important if you know anyone who needs it. Intervention helps you to get your independence back, at least for me it did."
