Deafblindness Definition

Deafblindness is the condition characterized by a combination of hearing and vision losses, which causes difficulty in communication, access to information, and mobility. Causes of the condition are classified into two categories; congenital and acquired. Deafblindness can be acquired through illness, injury or due to old age. Congenital blindness can be a result of prenatal infection, chromosomal syndromes like Down's syndrome, birth trauma or heavy alcohol and drug use of a pregnant mother.
