2016 Parent Learning Weekend
The Oregon Deafblind Project, in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Education hosted their annual Parent Learning Weekend on August 26-28 at the Oregon Garden Resort. For several of the parents it felt like going "home" since we had been at this resort twice before -- and really enjoyed our weekends there! A total of 10 families of children who are Deafblind were represented, two for the very first time.
