  • Ryan Bondroff's announcement from AADB

    I am Deaf-Blind. I have Usher Syndrome Type 1.

    I am very pleased and excited to announce the launch of a new task force titled as National Support Service Provider Task Force (NSSPTF).

    I made this important decision based on ongoing debates and discussions which is way long overdue for much needed action plan and solutions.

    The task force should consist of Deaf-Blind services agency professionals and Deaf-Blind community members.

    We will also work very closely with American Association of the Deaf-Blind and DeafBlind Citizens in Action.

    The task force will focus on short and long term goals. They are:

    A new term preferred by Deaf-Blind individuals and sub terms for various funding sources for services to Deaf-Blind individuals.

    Creation of a new certification board

    Creation of new national program

    Work closely with Department of Justice, AADB and DeafBlind Citizens in Action to include services in ADA (recognized/defined)

    Those goals are fluid as we work on them as we move forward. There will be a lot to be gained. We will share information with the entire Deaf-Blind community. Those decisions may be made by Deaf-Blind members only of the task force in terms of empowerment.

    I am also pleased to announce that Randy Pope accepted the position of Public Relations coordinator to share this information throughout the Deaf-Blind social media.

    If you have questions or need more information or are interested to join the task force, please reach out to me via email at nssptf@gmail.com.

    If you have feedback, suggestions or recommendations on new terms, evaluation and certification or any other issues related to SSP itself, please reach out to email me at nssptf@gmail.com. Your name will be kept confidential. Only information related to SSP issues you share with me will be shared with the task force members.

    All the best, Ryan Bondroff
