“I hope this kind of training continues so that more people are able to understand how MDVI (multiple disabilities with vision impairment) and deafblind students are unique human beings who have the right to get education suitable for their needs and abilities. Hopefully, this training can also open the minds and hearts of other teachers with students with disabilities in order to understand more about them.”
