Program Spotlight: Deaf-Blind Community Class
Held bi-weekly at Seattle Central Community College, Seattle Lighthouse’s Deaf-Blind Community Classes provide a free and accessible forum for Deaf-Blind individuals from the Lighthouse and the community to learn, socialize, and share experiences.
Additionally, our classes give American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters a valuable opportunity to work closely with Deaf-Blind individuals and hone their interpreting skills in a welcoming, supportive atmosphere.
The Lighthouse Continues to Offer Braille Training and Opportunities to Employees
Opportunities for braille training have unfortunately decreased in our society both for blind and visually impaired children and adults.
Studies have confirmed that braille readers are more likely to be employed, pursue higher education degrees, and live independently.
