Congenital Rubella Syndrome. Between and , there was a worldwide epidemic of rubella, also known as German measles. Pregnant women who contracted rubella in the first trimester of their pregnancy could pass the rubella virus to their developing fetus, causing the child to be born deaf, blind, with cardiac problems. Unborn babies are at high risk of rubella complications, Most children and adults fully recover from rubella with few complications. However, rubella infection in a pregnant woman during the first 3 months of pregnancy can result in miscarriage, fetal death, or a baby with deafness, eye, heart, liver or skin problems, or mental retardation. Presented are proceedings of a conference involving authorities in testing and evaluating the blind, deaf, and deaf-blind. In a paper titled "Psychological Implications of Assessing the Deaf", C. Goetzinger discusses references used in audiology, anatomy and physiology of the ear, degrees of hearing impairment, and implications of the various degrees of : Carole Rouin.

Litera- ture on self-concept often includes information about body image. Body Image of the Deaf-Blind Rubella Child The preschool deaf-blind rubella child is in the process of de- veloping a body image. He cannot do so as easily as the normal child because he has a combination of handicaps which make even this basic task inordinately difficult. The word congenital means “born with” or “present at birth”, so congenital deafblindness is a term used when someone is born with difficulties hearing and seeing. There are many known conditions and causes which are discussed in “About Deafblindness”. Rubella (German Measles) during pregnancy was once the most common cause of a baby being born . Congenital deafblindness occurs because of hereditary & genetic conditions, infection contracted by the mother during her pregnancy, or disease, infection or injury that affects a child early in their development.

Deaf-blindness refers to the combination of hearing and visual loss that severely impedes communication, education, employment, and independent living. While some individuals are totally deaf and blind, most deaf-blind people have different degrees of hearing and vision loss. A person who is deaf-blind has a unique experience of the world. For people who can see and hear, the world extends outward as far as his or her eyes and ears can reach. For the young child who is deaf-blind, the world is initially much narrower. Occurrence. Rubella occurs worldwide. See information about clinical case definition, clinical classification and epidemiologic classification of rubella and congenital rubella syndrome.. Reservoir. Rubella is a human disease. There is no known animal reservoir. Although infants with CRS may shed rubella virus for an extended period, a true carrier state has not been described. It makes sense of the predicament a "deaf-blind" or multi-sensory deprived child finds himself in, with distortions in perception that inevitably lead to deviant behaviour that can all too easily be mislabelled as constituting mental retardation, brain damage, or psychiatric : $
