The mission of NTAC is to assist all states to improve results for the approximately 12,000 children and youth who are deaf-blind. Our goal is to see these children and young adults meet challenging educational standards and be prepared for the employment and living arrangement of their choice. This mission is accomplished by providing technical assistance and information to individuals who are deaf-blind, their families, and the people who work with them.
