Have you wondered how you could get hooked up to resources about deafblindness without ever leaving your school building? Ever needed information about a particular student's hearing or vision impairment but there was no one around to ask? Would you like to connect with other interveners who provide the same kind of service you offer with deafblind students across the country?

Here are some great options for you to try:

· Check out state and national websites that provide incredible information on deafblindness. You may already be familiar with the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired 's website. On the sidebar to the right, you will find a heading called Texas Deafblind Project. Click on that and it will send you to a page with many kinds of information, from an intervener resources section to varied materials on deafblindness.

· Nationally, there are many web-based resources. From the TSBVI website, you can click on “statewide, national and international resources”. That will lead you on journeys to the National Information Clearinghouse on Children who are Deaf-Blind ( DB-LINK , at , or the Helen Keller National Center .
