WHO WE ARE

The National Family Association for Deaf- Blind (NFADB) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that has served families with individuals who are deaf-blind since 1994. 

Originally started by and for families, NFADB has expanded to include any interested individuals, professionals, organizations, and agencies that wish to empower the voices of families with individuals who are deaf-blind. 

The term “deaf-blind” means any combination of hearing and vision loss, occurring at any age, for any number of reasons. 

Communication, mobility, and learning may be affected. Children and adults who are deaf-blind may experience additional physical and cognitive challenges. A holistic approach to life and learning is critical for lifelong success. 

We are in the deaf-blind community together! 

What We Believe

NFADB believes that individuals who are deaf-blind are valued members of their communities and should have the same opportunities and choices as others in the community. 

Our Mission

The National Family Association for Deaf-Blind exists to empower the voices of families with individuals who are deaf-blind and advocate for their unique needs.
