About VSDB Outreach Services

Outreach Services at VSDB works to provide resources, consultation, webinars, workshops, and more to assist everyone in Virginia working with and caring for children ages 2-21 with hearing and/or vision loss. Our department helps to connect your questions and needs to the expertise housed with VSDB and throughout the state. Events through VSDB outreach are open to all Virginia residents and are not limited to those who are attending the school.

VSDB Outreach Services are funded through a grant from the Virginia Department of Education.
