DeafBlind Ontario Services

Founded in 1989, DeafBlind Ontario Services is a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals who are deafblind increase their independence and improve their quality of life through specialized services. With programs across the province, their services extend into a wide range of communities in Ontario.

Deafblindness is a combined loss of hearing and vision to such an extent that neither the hearing nor vision can be used as a means of accessing information to participate and be included in the community.

Individuals who are deafblind have the capacity to build their life skills, gain independence and contribute to the greater community with the support of professionally trained intervenors who use the sense of touch to help them communicate.
