Deafblindness is a unique and diverse condition that consists of a combination of vision and hearing loss.  It is rare that an individual with deafblindness would be completely blind and completely deaf.  Individuals who have a combined vision and hearing loss have unique communication, learning, and mobility challenges due to their dual sensory loss.  Deafblindness occurs in three out of every 100,000 births.  In Tennessee, 245 children and youth (ages birth through 21 years) have been identified as having both a vision and hearing loss.
