Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths & Adults

Description:
The Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths & Adults (HKNC) offers intensive and comprehensive rehabilitation training to individuals who are deaf-blind. The rehabilitation and personal adjustment training program at HKNC's headquarters in Sands Point provides evaluation and training in communication skills, adaptive technology, orientation and mobility, independent living, work experience, and other support services. Field Services include ten regional offices, and more than forty affiliated programs, a national training team, technical assistance center, older adults program, the National Technical Assistance Consortium for Children and Young Adults, and D-B LINK. The HKNC serves all Americans who are deafblind or have severe vision and hearing impairments.

The regional representatives of the Helen Keller National Center are located in ten offices across the country. The Mid-Atlantic region office’s consumers include individuals who are DeafBlind, their families, and public and private agencies that provide services. The regional representative is responsible for accessing the needs of individuals, communities, and states within his region and developing strategies of collaboration, coordination, and cooperation to help meet those needs. The Regional representative strives to make sure that DeafBlind consumers receive the services and training they need to become as independent and self-sufficient as possible.
