The 4to24 app is a free mobile app created for parents of youth who are deaf-blind or have combined hearing & vision loss and additional disabilities. It covers ages 4 to 24 years, to go from preschool age into young adulthood. It focuses on reaching the youth’s highest potential for independence, community engagement, and employment, with appropriate support.
If you’re a parent, the app provides information, activities, and links to resources to inform you about skills and experiences that would be helpful for your child as he or she grows.
Information is provided in two general formats: one focused on deaf-blind children and youth who may also have additional disabilities, and another focused on children and youth who are blind or have low vision.
For youth who are deaf-blind, information focuses on building skills and as much independence as possible, with particular attention to topics like developing a communication system, planning for the future, and creating a profile of the youth’s abilities and preferences to share with a support network. It offers suggestions for activities that are flexible for a broad range of ability levels.
Modules of information are delivered about once a month and are self-paced (no deadlines!), so you can use the information at your convenience.
The app is free to access for parents. To sign up, download the app and create an account by registering as a new user. The app will ask for some basic information on your child’s age and grade so that it can start you at the right level.
