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 21 who are suspected of having both a hearing AND a vision loss or difficulty in processing auditory and visual information. Young adults ages 22 to 26 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.
