Preparing the Learning Environment

No two children with deaf-blindness are alike. As such, preparing an environment for a child
who is deaf-blind must be highly individualized and based on a thorough assessment of the
child’s unique sensory, cognitive, and physical needs. The information collected will inform how
best to arrange the classroom and create organized, uncluttered learning spaces that are
stimulating, motivating, and built on the child’s strengths and interests.
