Welcome to the ICYDB!

The Idaho Project for Children and Youth with Deaf-Blindness (ICYDB) works to enhance the educational services provided to children and youth (birth to 21) with combined vision and hearing losses. We provide statewide technical assistance and training to support parents, service providers and agencies in meeting the educational needs of children and youth who are deafblind.  


We provide a range of no-cost services to parents, service providers and agencies across Idaho, with the aim of developing individualized strategies and support for children and youth with deafblindness.

These services include:

  • virtual or in-person family support
  • targeted or general support for family and IEP/IFSP teams
  • virtual or in-person observations
  • individual or group training

If you are a parent or anyone working with a child with deafblindness, you may be eligible to receive services. Download our eligibility criteria to learn more or fill out our online form to request services.
