The Ohio Center for Deafblind Education (OCDBE) is a grant-funded project awarded to the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services, University of Cincinnati, by the U.S. Department of Education with support from the Ohio Department of Education. The project provides services in Ohio to individuals, birth through 21 years, with deafblindness, including collaborative technical assistance to families, educational personnel and services providers through training and information dissemination. 

In addition, OCDBE is responsible for the annual Ohio Deafblind Census required as part of the National Deafblind Child Count.  The Ohio Center for Deafblind Education is dedicated to supporting innovative approaches to improve the education of children and youth with a combined vision-hearing loss also known as deafblindness.
