PRACTICE BRIEF: Supporting a University Student who is Deaf-blind in Writing for the Disciplines

Bhattacharyya (1997) finds that universities must scramble to accommodate students who are Deaf-blind “because of limited literature regarding post secondary education for Deaf-blind students and the fact they have not yet experienced serving this unique population.” This Brief focuses on a supportive collaboration between an Academic Language and Learning (ALL)tutor, a B.A. student with Deaf-blindness, and her interpreter.
