National Family Association for DeafBlind (NFADB) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that has served families of individuals who are deaf-blind since 1994.
Deaf-blindness means having combined hearing and vision losses which cause severe communication, mobility, and learning challenges. Accessing people and the surrounding environment can be very difficult. Many people who are deaf-blind have additional physical and cognitive impairments. Originally started by and for families of individuals who are deaf-blind, NFADB’s membership is now extended to any person or organization that wants to support individuals and families who are deaf-blind.
We are all in this community together! NFADB believes individuals who are deafblind are valued members of their community and should have the same opportunities and choices as others in the community. NFADB exists to empower the voices of families of individuals who are deaf-blind and advocate for their unique needs.
