Welcome to Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project

Welcome to the Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project (WDBTAP). We are a federally funded technical assistance and dissemination project. We are a resource to families, agencies and schools supporting infants, children and youth aged birth - 21 with combined vision and hearing loss.

The WDBTAP is a project within the Wisconsin Educational Services Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WESPDHH) Outreach and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This project runs on a 5 year grant cycle beginning October 1, 2013 and ending September 30, 2018. This grant was previously housed at the Silver Lake College as Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Education.

Could you use more support in providing strategies for working with your child/student? The Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project is available to provide support at no cost to children who are current on our federal deaf-blind registry. Some benefits of being on the registry:

  • Equipment trials
  • Lending library with resources
  • Workshops/trainings specific to the needs of this population
  • Family workshops/trainings
  • Free onsite programming recommendations/strategies

If you are not sure your child/student could be identified as having a combined vision and hearing loss, please contact the grant coordinator (608) 356-0091.
