Opportunity for Educator of Deaf-Blind Communities
Will you help us connect with an educator with experience working with Deaf or Deaf-Blind communities? Please read on and share this need with your network!
People who are both Deaf and Blind often struggle through life in isolation and are even sometimes thought of by their own families as worthless and incapable of learning. But God loves them, and His Word is for them. In order to bring God’s Word to the Deaf-Blind around the world, we developed Symbolic Universal Notation (SUN). SUN lets the Deaf-Blind from any language group quickly learn to read the Bible with a set of symbols that communicate concepts across cultures. The symbols are printed as raised images that are “read” by touch.
The SUN language is growing rapidly and achieving acceptance in key locations in the world. This program has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of people with God’s Word.
We are looking for an experienced educator to join our team as the SUN Deaf-Blind Educator and Researcher. This role requires some international travel to teach Deaf, Blind, and Deaf-Blind populations. When not traveling, this educator will research the best ways to print and display the SUN language.
The ideal candidate will have a heart and calling for these populations, patience and kindness in the process of teaching, and the motivation to solve problems and overcome challenges.
Qualifications and Requirements for SUN Deaf-Blind Educator and Researcher:
- Experience in teaching Blind and/or Deaf-Blind people.
- Familiar with technology and printed materials for the Blind and/or Deaf-Blind.
- Experience in academic research.
- Ability to travel internationally.
