The National Consortium on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) is a national technical assistance and dissemination center for children and youth who are deaf-blind. NCDB brings together the resources of three agencies with long histories of expertise in the field of deaf-blindness, The Teaching Research Institute (TRI) at Western Oregon University, the Helen Keller National Center (HKNC), and the Hilton/Perkins Program at Perkins School for the Blind.
NCDB works collaboratively with families, federal, state and local agencies to provide technical assistance, information and personnel training.
The Qigong Sensory Training Institute is funded by the Northwest Health Foundation to conduct ongoing research of Chinese Qigong massage as an early intervention for autism. The research has shown that with Qigong massage training and support, parents and other family members can become effective in their children's treatment. According to Dr. Louisa Silva, MD MPH, the project director, "Children are having fewer sensory problems, are calmer, transition better, and have improvements in sleep and digestion as well."
The Oregon Deafblind Project is a Federally-funded Technical Assistance and Dissemination project. The Project provides technical assistance, training, and information to enhance services for children in Oregon who are deafblind. The project serves children from birth through age 21 years.
Technical assistance and support to IEP teams serving students who are deafblind enables the teams to implement the highly specialized services needed in the provision of a free, appropriate, public education for learners who are deafblind, residing in Oregon.
