The Texas Deafblind Outreach Project is a federally funded (National Technical Assistance and Dissemination Center for Children Who Are Deaf-Blind CFDA No. 84.326T) technical assistance program focused on services for children and youth with deafblindness (birth thru 21). The Project provides information, support and training for families, professionals, paraprofessionals, and community members in Texas.
Our staff includes consultants with many years of experience in the field of deafblindness. They divide their focus to address the needs of the family, staff serving infants and preschool-aged students, and staff serving students 6-22 years of age.
A series of nationally sponsored family phone calls, free to families, conducted in Spanish are currently being presented. One is for families with children who have hearing and vision problems and one is specifically for families of children with CHARGE.
