Deaf-Blind Resource Team
In collaboration with The Pennsylvania Deaf-Blind Project, IU13 has developed a Deaf-Blind Resource Team (DBRT) intended to establish a system of technical assistance resources to build capacity at the state, regional, and local levels for supporting LEAs, educators, and families of students who are deaf-blind.
DBRT Vision & Mission
The vision of the IU13 Deaf-Blind Resource Team is to ensure that all who are deaf-blind achieve their maximum potential through increased independence, productivity, and integration into the community. Our mission is to provide research-based training and strategies, consultative services, and resources for local students, their families, and education agencies.
