ENRICHING LIVES, ONE TOUCH AT A TIME
If 95% of what we learn comes from our eyes and ears, imagine what it must be like to be deafblind.
Founded in 1989, DeafBlind Ontario Services is a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals who are deafblind increase their independence and improve their quality of life through specialized services.
With residential locations and community services programs across the province, our services extend into a wide range of communities in Ontario.
At DeafBlind Ontario Services, we take a holistic approach to providing Intervenor services that are customized to each client to increase the person’s independence and enrich his or her life.
By building a bond of trust, Intervenors use communication and active engagement that opens new doors of opportunity for individuals who are deafblind. This enables them to interact with the world around them and achieve as much independence as possible, to enjoy and embrace life’s journey.
