MENTORS, ROLE MODELS, AND PEERS: Both of my children, Ethan who is 19 years old and Gavin who is 16 years old, have Usher syndrome type 1; they were born deaf, are progressively losing their vision, and have severe balance issues. As seeing/hearing parents, my husband and I recognized the need to provide our children with mentors, role models, and peers. This certainly meant looking for individuals who had Usher syndrome but also included individuals with other disabilities who faced adversity successfully. Also included was our need as parents to connect with other parents who have had similar experiences. Jan 1, 2021 2652
