Among them: diagnostics of deafblindness, rehabilitation of deafblind people, inclusive theater as a means of communication, development of art accessible to people with visual and hearing impairments.
One of the main issues of the conference is how to train professionals who will be able to work with the deafblind. This topic is relevant for us.

Thanks to the lectures of the Charitable University in Moscow project, we managed to help the back worker, a resident of Pskov, Evgenia Petrovna Stepanova.

MAY 10: YOUNG VOLUNTEER FROM THE «DOM ROSTA”

Every morning from the window of his house Seryozha Sokolov sees 5 birches planted by him in memory of the soldiers who died during the Great Patriotic War. Serezha is a pupil of the family center for orphans "Dom ROSTa". Together with other children, he lives in a professional family in the village of Petrovsky in the Ivanovo region. In honor of the Victory Day this year, 12-year-old Serezha took part in planting trees in the Birch Grove public garden. He took care of the trees, watered, cleaned up old branches and garbage. Tatyana Mikhailovna Prokhorova the inhabitant of the village came up with the idea to organize such an event. It is by her efforts that the garden is transformed: she beautifies the flower beds, grows flowers. I collected the lists of all fellow villagers, participants of the Second World War: those who died, went missing, those who returned and who are no longer alive. There are tags on each tree that distinguish it from ordinary birches in the park: a red bandage and a tag with the name and title of the defender of the Motherland.
On May 9, Sergei together with his sister Christina and Vika Ilyina, his sworn sister, took part in a festive meeting. The guys read poems dedicated to the Great Patriotic War.
