terminology used by people who are deaf and blind reflects the etiology
of the disability. For example, people who are born deaf and become
blind often use D/deaf-blind to show they were first deaf. These
people often have sign language as their first language. People born
with both disabilities often are classified as deafblind. People
who are born blind and become deaf often use the term deaf/blind to identify
themselves.” Susse, Hugh “Terminology Deafblind, Deaf/Blind or Deaf-Blind?”
For the purposes of inclusion within this web site, I will use the term deaf-blind.
