International Conference on Early Intervention for Children with Deafblindness or Multisensory Impairments

Sense International Romania has organised The International Conference on Early Intervention for Children with Deafblindness or Multisensory Impairments, Bucharest, 18-20 March 2016.

This event approaches various themes around the development of children with multisensory impairments, such as:

  • Early diagnosis of visual impairments
  • C.H.A.R.G.E. Syndrome – causes, identification and impact on infants
  • Diagnosing hearing impairments at birth
  • The role of early intervention for newborn babies
  • The implications of multisensory impairments

The results of the research report on Early Intervention for Children with Multisensory Impairments in Romania 2007 – 2014 – Best Practice Model will be presented during the last session of the conference.

The special guest of this conference is His Excellency Jean Hubert Lebet – Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation to Romania.

The conference will be attended by specialists in education, health and social services from Romania and abroad, representatives of national and local authorities, Sense International Romania partners in implementing the project, parents of children with deafblindness, as well as other NGOs active in the field of disability.

”For Sense International Romania, the early intervention project is very close to our heart, because it is about newborn babies and small children who have both hearing and visual impairments, as well as other health problems. We are particularly glad that the event will be attended by numerous parents of children included in the early intervention programmes, those who understand the most the importance of this intervention. We bring to your attention extremely interesting presentations, held by extraordinary people – true specialists in their fields – deafblindness, early intervention, audiology, ophthalmology, endocrinology and neonatology” says Mrs Cristiana Salomie, Director of Sense International Romania."

The event is part of the project Early Intervention for Multisensory Impaired Babies – A Unique and Innovative Approach Initiated by the Civil Society, co-financed by Switzerland through the Swiss Contribution to the enlarged European Union.
