Thank you for your interest in our conavigation training. We have concluded our training for June 2023. We will be conducting future trainings, both online and in-person. If you are interested, please fill out the information below. We will reach out to you once a new date is determined.
Conavigators play a critical role in the lives of individuals who are DeafBlind. They provide vital information and environmental access so that the members of this community can autonomously manage daily activities and meaningfully engage in the workplace and community at large.
Some of the questions that will be discussed are: What are the tasks that define this type of work? What is exactly the role of a conavigator? Is this just another term for a personal aide? Are they interpreters?
Through this DeafBlind-lead workshop, we will explore the vital role of conavigators in enhancing the quality of life for individuals who are DeafBlind and the ways in which their expertise can support independence and inclusion in society. Although we will explore why the conavigator service is crucial, we will focus on how this work can be done effectively creating the right environment for the DeafBlind to be their most autonomous selves.
Our goal is to prepare individuals who may have the interest and circumstances to work in this capacity. If you think this is you, we would love to hear from you. Please fill out the application below. The workshop will be presented in American Sign Language. You may contact us with further questions at email@example.com.
