New England Consortium on Deafblindness

The New England Consortium onĀ DeafblindnessĀ (NEC) is a federally funded grant serving Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire, through the United States Department of Education, Special Education. Our purpose is to assist state and local education agencies in developing the capacity to serve children and youth who are deafblind. NEC provides training and technical assistance, disseminates information regarding evidenced-based practices, provides parent training and networking activities, and collaborates with local and state agencies serving children who are deafblind or at-risk.
