Deafblindness Information

What does it mean to be eligible under Deafblindness?

DeafBlindness means having both hearing and visual impairments, the combination of which causes such severe communication and other developmental and educational problems that the child cannot be accommodated in special education programs designed solely for students having hearing or visual impairments.

Purpose of Regional Programs

The children, birth-to-21, who as a result of their low-incidence disability require specialized services, are eligible for support from the Regional Programs. Regional Programs work in collaboration with Local School Districts, Early Intervention, Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) programs, Families, and Community Agencies to provide specialized educational support for children with deafblindness impairment.
