What is deaf-blindness?

Deaf-blindness is a combination of hearing and vision impairment
which can cause communication, developmental, and educational needs that
cannot be addressed by programs designed for just deafness or just blindness.
A person does not need to be completely deaf or completely blind
for the definition of deaf-blindness or to qualify for services.
