Hi everyone my name is Heather Quayle (finger spells her full name ) Next week is Deafblind awareness week. I am Deafblind myself and next week I plan to upload different videos onto my Facebook page. The videos you will see are that of my Deafblind friends from all over the UK as I’ve been busy flying here, there and everywhere to get these clips. The videos will show a brief insight into their lives, their different activities and their views of being Deafblind. You will be able up to watch, read and learn about Deafblindness.
I grew up with a Deafblind father and my Auntie was also Deafblind so for me, my life was pretty normal seeing and being in the Deafblind world. It’s funny though when sometimes you step into the Deaf community or meet a Hearing person and they’re surprised as they’ve never experienced meeting a Deafblind person before. So that’s why the clips this coming week are to show you the differences in Deafblind people and make it easier and clearer to understand.
Next week whenever you are watching the different video clips please can I ask if you have any burning questions or perhaps you feel embarrassed to ask or think it’s an inappropriate question or it’s discriminatory please have the confidence to ask as I’m happy to answer any questions. Remember it’s Deafblind awareness week so it’s your opportunity to ask me for more information. I hope you all enjoy watching the upcoming clips next week. Bye bye (Heather waves goodbye)
