We Need YOUR Input!

KCDHH’s Deaf-Blind Community Study Group is launching its “Questionnaire for Kentucky’s Deaf-Blind Constituents” TODAY! This confidential questionnaire will help determine if accessibility issues are prohibiting Deaf-Blind individuals and individuals with a combined hearing and vision loss from obtaining local and state services in Kentucky. Feedback will be used to guide further positive changes for these constituents. The deadline for completing the questionnaire will be Friday, October 29. Please forward this information to anyone who is part of the Deaf-Blind community in Kentucky who may be interested in participating. Click here to access the questionnaire. If you would like additional information about the questionnaire, please contact KCDHH at kcdhh@ky.gov.
