National Child Count

Each year in December, state projects serving children who are deaf-blind report on children identified in their state. The count serves as the common vehicle to meet federal grant requirements for both the state/multi-state and national technical assistance projects. It also serves as a common data collection and reporting mechanism for use across the country. This group serves as the nexus for state project activities related to the child count, its purpose, focus and discussions.
