Louisiana DeafBlind Registry

The purpose of the registry is to provide basic information about people with combined vision and hearing loss in the United States. This information is to be used as a census of persons who are DeafBlind, as a planning tool and for research purposes. All identifying information is confidential.  

The registry data also helps collect data in support of services or programs in the state for the DeafBlind community. For instance, if there is a need of specific services for the DeafBlind community, the HNKC registry data can be utilized as justification of the needed additional services.

It is vital to maintain an accurate census in order to provide various services and programs to Louisiana’s DeafBlind citizens. If you are a person with combined vision and hearing loss, parent/guardian, or service provider for an individual who is DeafBlind, please take a few moments to fill out the registry at this link:
