Virginia Project for Children and Youth with Deaf-Blindness
The Virginia Project for Children and Youth with Deaf-Blindness is a statewide program designed to provide technical assistance, training, distance education, and networking information to families, service providers, and individuals birth through 21, who are deaf-blind/dual sensory impaired. A toll free number (877) 295-7799 and an interactive web site are available to families, service providers, and others interested in obtaining and sharing information statewide. Basic demographic and statistical information is maintained on individuals (grant regulations - National Deaf-Blind Census), birth through 21 years old throughout the State to assist with identification of needs for program development, training and research. Project personnel work closely with State and local agencies to coordinate service delivery, disseminate information regarding optimal practice interventions and facilitate improved outcomes by children and youth who are deaf-blind.
