Transition Guide for Students who are Deaf-Blind

The Transition Guide for Students who are Deaf-Blind is a product of the Deaf-Blind Program at the Center for Disabilities. The Transition Guide for Students who are Deaf-Blind was made possible in part through funding from the South Dakota Department of Education, Special Education Programs.

The Transition Guide for Students who are Deaf-Blind is designed to be a resource for families, schools and other agencies involved in the life of transition-aged South Dakotans who are deaf-blind. While the guide contains information specific to South Dakota, it also includes information on national resources and on transition that would apply to all students who are deaf-blind.
