Hey, my beloved friends, this is Burton, the one and only pro blogger shop dogger (me) is here with a new topic. How have you been? And also how do you find my blog? Interesting or informative? Don’t forget to tell me. I am the shop pup and I’m here for you, always for you (and Jon too of course). Let’s get to my new blogging topic. Today’s topic is Helen Keller Awareness Week. Yeaahh, that’s right.
Helen Keller Deaf-Blind Awareness Week is honored in the last week of June i.e. from 23rd – 29th June. This week is in recognition with the deaf and blind people in the society. The purpose of this week is to spread awareness about the deaf-blind community in U.S. This week focuses on increasing public awareness and understanding of deaf and blind people.
According to the Helen Keller National Center (HKNC), around 70,000 people are having hearing and eyesight loss. Deaf Blind awareness week became officially acknowledged by the federal Government. Helen Keller was deaf and blind but she did not let her disabilities keep her away from living a fully fledged life.
Sign language can prove to be a good means of communication for the hearing impaired. Braille can also be used for blind people. Being the shop pup, many people think that I don’t understand what they saying or maybe I am really deaf. They don’t recognize that I surely do understand everything. I am not deaf or blind, I’m a typing dog for goodness sakes!
HKNC provides all materials for free to individuals in order to arrange awareness activities in community or anywhere. The West Australian Deaf Blind Association also provides awareness video named “Assume Nothing”, that focus on the fundamentals of deaf-blindness and also the abilities and efficiencies of such people.
You can also share this awareness week with people around you for improving accessibility for deaf and blind people. If like me, you also want to learn more about what can be done to help such people to cope with the loss caused by deaf-blindness. You can get in touch with the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired or visit www.hknc.org or otherwise visit me on my blog, I am always here to help and keep you posted.
Friends, I almost forgot to tell you guys, that I and My Identity Doctor is offering free awareness ribbons to print off! They are used to pin on clothes or stick it on refrigerators or inside your car window. Last but not the least, you can also share this awareness ribbons with your friends and neighbors and other relatives.
Yours Burton. (The Magic Blogging Shop Dog)
