home home MDVI

“Include Me” is an open source publication for families, caregivers, community workers, educators, and friends who support and encourage children with multiple disabilities and vision impairment (MDVI) or deafblindness (DB) to participate in home, community and educational activities. Written from the perspective of a child with MDVI or deafblindness, “Include Me” helps us all to hear the voice a child who, like all children, is “waiting and wanting to be loved, respected, and included”.

“Include Me” has been created in multiple languages, and all versions are designed for printing on A4 size paper (in landscape page layout).

The quality of the publication reflects the expertise and work of ICEVI member organisations, Perkins International, CBM and Deafblind International. These organisations focus on supporting and promoting the rights of children and young people with MDVI or deafblindness. ICEVI extends thanks to the Blind People’s Association (India); Tanne, Swiss Foundation for Congenital Deafblindness; and the organisations and individuals who assisted with the language translations.
