A panel discussion about deaf-blind issues brought together four experts in the field; Dr.Lea Hyvarinen, M.D., addressed the problem from the medical viewpoint; Charlotte Whiteacre, a deaf- blind professional, provided a view from a consumer as well as a professional; Carol Day- Drummer gave insight into clinical aspects; and Lindsay Gimble provided discernment into working with the deaf-blind population from the interpreting stance. This article is based upon these four "testimonies" and provides the reader with an all-around look at providing services to persons who are deaf-blind. In addition to the presentations, the question and answer session brought into action some topics which were not addressed during the panel discussion. The reader is provided with a four-way look at the field of deaf-blindness.
