Many people with Usher Syndrome grew up as Deaf and continue to be of Deaf heart. This workshop will look at the Usher Syndrome experience and the dynamics within the Deaf community to ensure access for Deaf peers as they lose their vision. Vignettes from life experiences, vision loss simulation activities, and inclusion efforts that have worked in the Vermont Deaf community will be shared.
