Program Description:

Our Technology Training Center (TTC) is designed specifically to serve Deaf-Blind adults and meet a glaring need in the Deaf-Blind community: a chronic lack of access to current information and technology.  Full participation in society requires access to information and communication with others.  Information through radio, television, newspapers, libraries, and casual conversation is often inaccessible to Deaf-Blind individuals, leaving them isolated and marginalized in society.  Computers and assistive technology are a critical tool in the inclusion of Deaf-Blind people in the workplace and society.

Program Description:

The Annual Deaf-Blind Retreat is part of our nationally recognized Deaf-Blind Program that has provided employment, services, and support to Deaf-Blind individuals for the past 30 years.  While everyday life presents barriers for Deaf-Blind individuals, the retreat offers a welcoming community of peers and friends who truly understand the experience of living with a dual disability.  The retreat provides Deaf-Blind people with an opportunity to learn new independent living skills, network with service providers, and establish relationships that provide peer support throughout the year.  For many, the retreat marks the beginning of a whole new life of choices and possibilities, engaged in a community that cares.
