What is Deaf-Blindness?

A young child is standing and hand painting on the wall with both hands. The federal definition of deaf-blindness is “concomitant hearing and visual impairments, the combination of which causes such severe communication and other developmental and educational needs that they cannot be accommodated in special education programs solely for children with deafness or children with blindness.” 34 CFR 300.8 (c) (2)

According to the Kansas Department of Education (KSDE) Factsheet, deaf-blindness is defined as children who have a degree of vision loss (blind) and a degree of hearing loss (deaf) that is determined by the age of onset and varies to the extent, progression, and degree of loss. “Deaf-blindness” means the combination of hearing and visual impairments that causes such severe communication and other developmental and educational needs that they cannot be accommodated in special education programs solely for the hearing impaired or the visually impaired (K.A.R. 91- 40-1(o)).
