What you'll find in our info center
In addition to what you find on this website, there are many other great sources of information about deaf-blindness. NCDB's most extensive partnership in this area is with Perkins School for the Blind. The research librarian at Perkins' Hayes Research Library is a part-time NCDB employee and NCDB and Perkins work closely together to stay up-to-date on the literature on deaf-blindness and make it available to families and practitioners.

In January 2019, NCDB began a new group called the Deaf-Blind Information Consortium. It consists of agencies that, in addition to other services, make information about deaf-blindness available to a national audience. Its purpose is to share ideas and resources and improve the coordination of information on deaf-blindness provided to families and service providers throughout the United States.

NCDB Practice Guides
NCDB is creating a series of practice guides that outline the essential components of instructional practices commonly used with children who are deaf-blind. They are primarily intended as a tool for state deaf-blind project personnel and practitioners to inform training and coaching needs.
