• Overview

    Is your child blind or visually impaired?
    Is your child deaf or hard of hearing?
    Does your child have both hearing and vision impairments?

    The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind’s Early Intervention Program is here to help parents and guardians across South Carolina who may have answered “yes” to any or all of the questions above.


    The Early Intervention Program, in partnership with South Carolina First Steps, identifies, educates, and serves children who are deaf or blind. Children in the program range in age from birth to 3 and reside in counties throughout the state.


    Parents may choose to register their child with BabyNet, a statewide early intervention database that helps early interventionists identify the services needed for each child.

    Early Intervention


    The Early Intervention Program was established in 1984 with funding from the state Legislature. Since then, the program has served approximately 15,000 children ages birth to 5 with sensory disabilities across the state of South Carolina.

    The Early Intervention Program is a partner of the South Carolina First Steps and BabyNet in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
