abstract:This descriptive qualitative interview study investigates the perspectives of college students who are deafblind. The purpose of the research was to investigate participants perceptions about being college students and deafblind and to gain insights into their experiences. Qualitative methods were used to conduct videotaped interviews with 11 students. Interviews were transcribed and analyzed. Results of the study indicate that students had to manage both adjustments to visual impairment and academic supports. Implications for practice include being knowledgeable about deafblindness and supporting selfdetermination skills.
