Network Vision Statement and Logo
NCDB, in collaboration with state deaf-blind projects, has developed a few items we can all use to promote our network efforts. These items, created in 2017, can help us articulate our collective objectives, brand our collaborative work, and share knowledge and tools.
Network Vision Statement
Children and youth who are deaf-blind receive supports and services that allow them to experience full integration and participation in society including education, employment, community, and social relationships.
Our Mission is to provide families, professionals, and the community with:
- Opportunities for shared leadership and collaboration
- A national network of supports and services across the age range
- Personnel who are qualified and knowledgeable
- Systems with improved capacity
As a network, state deaf-blind projects and NCDB have long collaborated on materials that generated conversation about how to best represent these mutual efforts. This logo provides a way to brand collaborative products and increase visibility for the network.
Criteria for Logo Use
The logo signifies that the effort and resources used to build a product were provided by state deaf-blind projects and/or NCDB working in collaboration. It is not meant to confer authority. NCDB products and materials almost always involve collaboration with state deaf-blind projects, so NCDB will be including the network logo on most of its materials. State deaf-blind projects may also wish to use the logo on materials that involve collaboration with other state deaf-blind projects.
