Deafblind is an educational term referring to individuals with combined hearing and vision loss. The majority of children who are deafblind also have additional physical, medical and/or cognitive problems. Most children with CHARGE will be considered deafblind, even though most of them retain some usable hearing and/or vision. Children are considered to be deafblind (and eligible for deafblind services) when the combination of their hearing and vision loss causes such severe communication and other developmental and educational needs that they require significant and unique adaptations in their educational programs. Every state has a Deaf-Blind Project to provide services from birth to 21.
