Oklahoma Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project

The Oklahoma Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project is a service targeting children and youth who have a loss in both vision and hearing.  The child does not have to be completely deaf and completely blind to qualify – they must have a loss in vision and a loss in hearing.  The project services are free.

Below is detailed information about their services.  If you suspect a child has losses in vision and hearing or the child has a diagnosis listed on the referral form, please refer them to the Oklahoma Deaf-Blind TA Project.

 Why is it important to refer children to the Oklahoma Deaf-Blind TA Project:

  • Early identification is crucial for later success.
  • Children with losses in vision and in hearing have unique characteristics that require special strategies and techniques.
  • This project is the only entity devoted to serving children with deaf-blindness.
  • Maintain statewide census of children with deaf-blindness to improve services.

Here’s what the Oklahoma Deaf-Blind Project can offer you at no cost: 

  • Information individualized for the child
  • 1:1 support from project staff and families
  • State and National resources
  • Visits to the child’s home or school
  • Notifications of free professional development opportunities

It’s called the  “Just in Time” tool [PDF] and it contains the most essential resources identified by both families and professionals to address hearing-related needs. This tool is designed for broad-based family organizations, such as Family Voices and Parent Training and Information Centers. Additionally, it can be useful for primary care providers and early interventionists to connect families with D/HH essential resources. A Spanish version is available at
