State Deaf-Blind Projects

Each state has a federally-funded State Deaf-Blind project to help families and educators to provide services for children (0-21) who are deaf-blind.  The National Center on Deaf-Blindness works with all of these state projects and is a good place to start to learn about resource and to find your state project.

Parent/Family Groups

Many states have a group for families with an individual who is deaf-blind. These groups typically provide information and support to families within that state.  Several of these family groups are also NFADB Affiliates.

Check with your state deaf-blind project to find out if your state has a parent group.

Hayes Research Library Deafblind Resources
