Connect Society is proud to introduce our new DeafBlind Support Service Program, that was spearheaded by the Alberta Society of the DeafBlind!

The DeafBlind Support Service Program entails both Deaf and Hearing Support Service Providers (SSPs) who have undergone training in Orientation and Mobility, Tactile American Sign Language and basic Pro-Tactile. The SSPs support DeafBlind individuals as well as Hard of Hearing (or Late-Deafened) Blind individuals, individuals with low vision and hearing by providing transportation, accompanying the individuals in transit, as Communication Facilitators who are able to do voice-over, Tactile ASL/Pro-Tactile. The SSPs support the individuals in personal errands, social events, meetings, recreational, fitness, and many more, to promote independence and empowerment.

If you or if you know anyone who meets the criteria to obtain SSP services from our program, please contact us.
