Parent Weekend 2014

Animoto video link takes you to another page

The Oregon Deafblind Project, in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Education, hosted the annual Parent Learning Weekend. This year, the parent committee chose Newport as our site. It was a beautiful, peaceful site to be at. We had Robbie Blaha (from the Texas project), Anne Olson-Murphy (from the Willamette Regional Program/WESD) and Tamara Bakewell (from Family to Family Health Services, OHSU) as speakers and facilitators of the sessions. We ate our main meals at Zach's Bistro - which had a view of the ocean. This year, fourteen families enjoyed spending the weekend together - the largest number we have had thus far.
