Presenting Free, Online Training with Continuing Education Credit

This training offers 2.5 hours of continuing education credit and will get you started with tools and strategies for communicating and connecting with people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or visually impaired.
The Center works to bring together the organizations, agencies, and individuals who support learners who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or visually impaired and their families.

Our goal is to ensure communities build capacity to provide effective tools to support learners who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or visually impaired live their best lives for their whole lives.
