History of Deaf-Blind Education

Laura Bridgman, the first person who was deaf-blind to learn language, entered the New England Asylum for the Blind (Perkins School for the Blind) in 1837. There have been programs and services for students who are deaf-Blind in the United States since that time. This section explores the evolution of those services and the impact of federal support on the service system.
