Project Reach: llinois DeafBlind Services will host the annual Midwest Transition Institute along with nine other State DeafBlind Projects, the Helen Keller National Center and the National Center on Deaf-Blindness. Some components will be completed virtually prior to and after the in-person event, and for those who prefer not to attend in-person, some components will be available virtually.

Who can participate? Any young adult who is DeafBlind, age 16 through 22, and on the child count of one of the ten participating state deaf-blind projects below and their parent/guardian. Candidates will be language users (with or without devices), able to engage in group activities for at least 30 minutes at a time, and able to stay overnight in a dorm-type setting.

What is the purpose of the Institute? Young adults who are DeafBlind will make progress toward their self-identified transition priorities by completing sections of a transition portfolio, interacting with other young adults and DeafBlind adult mentors from across the Midwest, and learning transition skills related to their life plans in a fun environment. Parents and guardians will learn together about life after graduation and how to plan ahead.

Contact your State Deaf-Blind Project for details, registration links and updates.
