Deafblindness affects more than 10,000 children between birth and 21 years of age in the United States.

Deafblindness has over 70 known causes, including Usher's syndrome, CHARGE syndrome, meningitis, and rubella.

Appropriate education must address both the hearing and vision impairment, as well as any other disabilities that may be present.
