Main content

The Indiana Deaf-Blind Services Project is responsible for conducting the federally required annual count of Indiana infants, toddlers, children and youth who are deaf-blind or are at risk for deaf-blindness. The census information is vital to planning and implementing services for deaf-blind children and young adults, their families, and educators. Although the main registry reporting activities are conducted one time per year, a child may be added or removed from the registry at any time during the year. By reporting a child to the Indiana Deaf-Blind Services Project Census, the educator, the child, and his or her family are eligible for services from the project free of charge.

The Project compiles the child count information and uses data for program and technical assistance planning. In addition, the project forwards registry information to the National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) for the federal deaf-blind registry. Other state and multi-state deaf-blind projects across the United States collect this same data and submit it to NCDB to be compiled into the National Deaf-Blind Census. Registry information is completely confidential and no names or identifying information is submitted to national child count.
