As a national technical assistance center funded by the federal Department of Education, NCDB works to improve the quality of life for children who are deaf-blind and their families by:
- Creating visibility and direction for identified priorities through a range of practices, activities, supports and partnerships.
- Identifying and encouraging new innovations in local, state, and national practice and policy.
- Promoting opportunity for reflection, debate, and constructive dialogue around ideas and developing practice.
- Maintaining a rich repository of content, history, and knowledge, easily available and shared by all who are part of the community of deaf-blindness.
