The Lighthouse’s nationally renowned DeafBlind Program includes the following programs:
DeafBlind Technology Training Center: Our Technology Training Center (TTC) serves the DeafBlind community in building skills through the use of computer and assistive technology. The TTC offers training on up-to-date assistive technologies for both work and independent living.
DeafBlind Retreat: Our week-long Annual DeafBlind Retreat is an opportunity for Deaf-Blind people from throughout the United States and other countries to come together and learn from one another. The retreat offers an array of activities, workshops, resources, and information in a completely accessible environment.
DeafBlind Community Classes: DeafBlind community classes provide a forum giving members of the DeafBlind community access to information in an accessible setting. DeafBlind participants have opportunities to connect with others in the community, learn leadership and presentation skills, get information on a wide range of subjects and support American Sign Language Interpreters and Support Service Providers to develop skills working with DeafBlind individuals.
DeafBlind Independent Living Skills Training and Education: These classes create opportunities for DeafBlind people to establish and maintain independent lives through personal and home management techniques, communication support, and use of community services.
DeafBlind Intern and Mentorships: Intern and Mentorships are available to DeafBlind individuals or interpreting students. Through this program participants can tailor their learning experience to meet the goals they have set for themselves. While ASL Interpreting Internships are most commonly requested, we also offer positions to DeafBlind individuals to learn organizational and coordination skills for programs or events.
