Who We Are:

No one said it was easy to raise a child or be a child with a hearing loss or vision impairment. But with good information, helpful training, and the right technologies, what was once an unthinkable difficulty can turn into a quite manageable fact in a wonderful life.

Washington Sensory Disabilities Services (WSDS) is here to assist children who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, or deaf-blind, by providing assessment services, training and other support to children, school districts, families and service providers. WSDS staff are located state wide. Three separate components support WSDS services.

WSDS is a state needs project funded through the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, Special Education Section.
