Tennessee Deaf-Blind Project
A federally funded program for families, educators and professionals
Deafblindness is a rare condition consisting of combined hearing and vision loss. Individuals typically have some degree of hearing and/or vision. They may face unique challenges in communication, learning and mobility.
Tennessee Deaf-Blind Project (TNDB) is a federally funded program that informs and trains families, educators and other professionals. Its goal is to improve outcomes for those ages birth through 21 with combined hearing and vision loss.
Services may be free to anyone from birth to age 21 who has both vision and hearing losses. Services include on-site consultations, training workshops and conferences, educational and functional planning and resource referrals.
