The Community Support Team also houses Deaf Plus/Deaf Blind services.These services provide highly specialized support to individuals who require complex behavioral and mental health services, and who are also in need of specialized communication interventions as a result of vision loss, hearing loss or both. In addition these individuals require Deaf/Deaf Blind Interveners who act as the individual’s eyes and ears and provide communication in American Sign Language (ASL) via traditional and/or hand-over-hand signing. Other modes of communications are used based on individual learning styles and needs; every program is matched on an individual basis. We can provide anywhere from 5 hours of day support per week to 24 hours per day.
To be eligible for The Community Support Program the individual must have Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) funding.
