The National SSP Development Alliance has asked the NFB Deaf-Blind Division to circulate a national survey to determine the training, experiences, skills and knowledge necessary to provide SSP services that lead to more independent and empowered lives. Here’s how you can help:

If you are DeafBlind: Please forward the survey, found here, to your favorite SSPs as soon as possible.

If you are a SSP: Please take the survey by April 1, 2017.

To learn more about the survey, please visit our Initiatives page.
