This blog post discusses 10 commonalities shared by people who are blind and deaf. *They may have difficulty with reading and writing. They can be more prone to depression because of their lack of social interaction abilities. *If they are born blind, they often acquire deafness later in life due to a medical condition such as meningitis or rubella infection. They will need extra help in the form of speech therapy, braille literacy skills training, orientation and mobility instruction (O&M) for those who have been diagnosed with blindness at an advanced age, assistive technology evaluation services from qualified professionals familiar with ICT devices or technologies that support independence for people who are blind/deaf-blind.. It is difficult for them to keep up on current events without special accommodations made by others around them – either in the form of written information or other methods. They are more likely to be bullied, especially if they have a disability diagnosis in addition to blindness/deafness. *They may not be able to make out facial expressions and body language cues that others take for granted when communicating with them such as sign language interpreting services provided by qualified professionals familiar with their needs.. A person who is blind/ deaf will need extra help in order to learn how they can navigate through an apartment building independently – either through orientation and mobility instruction (O&M) programs offered at some schools, online resources like Audio Tactile Maps which provide navigation instructions via vibrating headphones worn on the back of one’s head or voice-over technology apps
