National Consortium on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB)

The National Consortium on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) is a national technical assistance and dissemination center for children and youth who are deaf-blind. NCDB conducts initiatives and activities to increase the capacity of state and local early intervention and education agencies to improve policies and practices for children and youth who are deaf-blind; promote the use of evidence-based practices; and increase the capacity of families to develop relationships with fellow families, service providers, and others, and expand their knowledge of deaf-blindness and skills in self-advocacy and self-empowerment.
