At DB Central we maintain the belief that individuals who are DeafBlind share equally in the respect, opportunity, and life enjoyment afforded to all individuals. We are committed to advancing the recognition of the unique needs presented by DeafBlindness. This is accomplished by promoting individualized, systematic instruction and family-centered planning processes.
We serve children and young adults age birth through twenty-one who are suspected of having both a hearing AND a vision loss or difficulty in processing auditory and visual information. Young adults ages twenty-two to twenty-six who are DeafBlind will receive referral services to adult service agencies.
Students who are DeafBlind and have additional disabilities are also eligible for our services. For more information about our services and eligibility, visit our
Project Information page.
