Atsushi Mori

Board Member, Tokyo Friendship Society of the Deafblind, International Cooperation Committee Member, Japan Deafblind Association

My name is Atsushi Mori. I am deafblind since I was born. I am 27 years old. My communication methods are tactile sign language, Finger-Braille and Communication Board. Currently, I am studying in the graduate school of the Tsukuba University of Technology majoring Information and Communication Accessibility.

When I was 3 years old, I started to go to the pre-school for children with hard-of-hearing. I started elementary school when I was 6 years old at the local school for the deaf, but moved to the National School for the Blind in Tokyo when I was 10 years old. I entered regular college when I was in 19 years old and graduate school since 25 years old.

I would like to contribute to planning and building a secure and comfortable living environment for persons with deafblindness in Japan.
