Welcome

The Project for New Mexico Children and Youth Who Are Deafblind is a statewide program designed to provide technical assistance, training, distance education, and networking information to families, service providers, and individuals, birth through 21, who are deafblind. This web site offers parents and service providers a place to:

  • Share and receive information
  • Support each other throughout the state
  • Receive consultations regarding assistive technology
  • Access links to state and national organizations providing services and information.

This website was designed to facilitate the development of a robust interactive community concerned with deafblindness. Please check back regularly as the Community Rooms expand, and to see upgrades such as emerging web courses and e-briefings which will also be added. To help you navigate this new web environment we have provided some helpful documents. For more information, please call us at our toll-free number (877) 614-4051. Or, email us at nmdb@salud.unm.edu.

We are very pleased to announce that The New Mexico Project for Children and Youth with Deafblindness website was a winner in the EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information) contest for universal web design. Web Sites were evaluated both on their general attractiveness and HTML design as well as their accessibility for people with Disabilities. EASI bears full responsibility for its decisions.  EASI awarded us with several assistive technology resources listed in our Resources section and available through the CDD Resource library. They also thanked us for setting an example for other web designers to follow.

EASI:  Equal Access to Software and Information

We would like to acknowledge and express our thanks to all those who have been so very helpful by providing both information and inspiration to us (whether they were aware of it or not) in getting both our project and this web site up and running. This includes, but is not limited to, NTAC, The Arizona Deafblind Project, The Nevada Dual Sensory Impairment Project, and the A-Z to Deafblindness web site. We are excited to join the many fantastic organizations involved in this web community for individuals with deafblindness.
