Our Goalball Homecoming was canceled last week due to the big snowstorm. We, Bulldogs, won't allow that to stop us from bringing the loud spirit to the CSDB gym for the rescheduled Pep Rally and Staff vs. Students Goalball. What a great day it was!

In the Colorado Home Intervention Program (CHIP), under the Outreach Programs at the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind (CSDB), we are committed to equity and inclusion. We are deeply committed to supporting children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing and their families throughout the state. Given this commitment, we are reviewing the program and updating policies, procedures, and outdated terminology. The terminology for Colorado Hearing Resource Coordinator (CO-Hear) is outdated and ready for a change. We are looking forward to gathering input and ideas about a name change for this position from the community and stakeholders. Submit your suggestion via the Google link. Please be on the lookout for upcoming opportunities to provide additional feedback and suggestions for consideration of our program. We appreciate the continued support and partnership with families, collaborators, and community members.
