Technical Assistance

Connections Beyond Sight and Sound is a partnership between the Maryland State Department of Education and the University of Maryland, College Park. This project supports children with deaf-blindness in their homes, schools, and communities by providing consultation, training, special programs, resources, and technical assistance to children and their families and care providers.

During Fall, 2013, CBSS became the collaborative Maryland and District of Columbia Deaf-blind Project. In previous grant cycles, CBSS served as the Maryland Deaf-blind Project and provided support for the DC Deaf-blind Project through supplemental grant funds.
