 The Hungarian Deafblind Association was founded in 1994 with the following purposes:

  • to support deafblind children, adults and their families, and provide them with advocacy;
  • to support the integration of deafblind people into the society;
  • to raise public awareness regarding deafblindness as a distinct disability;
  • to contribute to deafblindness-prevention

People living with visual and hearing imparments are considered deafblind, if their dual sensory loss does not allow the use of educational and assistive methods commonly used with visually impaired and hard of hearing/deaf people.

On behalf of the members of the Association:

  • we provide informative and legal consultation;
  • we keep contact with deafblind persons and their families;
  • we provide parents raising deafblind children, other organizations and their professionals with counselling;
  • we organize free time activities, summer camps and meetings for our members;
  • we organize clubs: handicraft and Usher-club, sport activities;
  • we edit and distribute our paper “Szemfüles” and our Newsletter

For the more effective work of ofAssociation we gladly welcome volunteers!
