National Center on Deaf-Blindness


As a national technical assistance center funded by the federal Department of Education, NCDB works to improve the quality of life for children who are deaf-blind and their families by:

  1. Creating visibility and direction for identified priorities through a range of practices, activities, supports and partnerships.
  2. Identifying and encouraging new innovations in local, state, and national practice and policy.
  3. Promoting opportunity for reflection, debate, and constructive dialogue around ideas and developing practice.
  4. Maintaining a rich repository of content, history, and knowledge, easily available and shared by all who are part of the community of deaf-blindness.
