Welcome to DeafBlind Central

At DeafBlind Central (DB Central), we maintain the belief that individuals who are DeafBlind share equally in the respect, opportunity, and life enjoyment afforded to all individuals.

DB Central provides free services, year-round, for both families and professionals who support students who have combined vision and hearing loss from ages birth to 26.
