Event: DCARA Bay Area Hosts Deaf Blind Workshops

Folks, if you live in the Bay Area, you should come to one or both of these workshops and get to meet me! I am giving two very different workshops, both on the topic of Deaf Blind cultural sensitivity. Read the workshop description and if you feel it fits you, mark it on your calendar and contact Ms. Reis if one of them requires you to register. Hope to see YOU there! xoxo Christine aka Coco
