What are the criteria for being considered hard of hearing?  If one is blind
and has a hearing loss in one ear, are they eligible for the deaf/blind

Blessings in Jesus' name
Philippians 4:6-7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Hello fellow Californians,

                Being both blind and hard of hearing presents a set of
unique challenges, but it, as with blindness by itself, does not hold us
back from living the life we want. There are techniques we can use to access
information which the combination of blindness and hearing loss makes it
more challenging to access. Through support and networking we can learn
these techniques from each other, and through our advocacy we can educate
others about them. 

                I would like to schedule a conference call to discuss the
possibility of forming a deafblind group in California. I would like to
schedule it for this Sunday, July 19 at 7 PM. This will be an informal
network of affiliate members who share the common challenge of being blind
and hard of hearing. If you are interested in being a part of this group,
please reply or contact me offlist. 

Here's to living the life we want!

Angela Fowler
