United StatesEdit

In the United States multiple states operate specialized boarding and/or statewide schools for the deaf, along with the blind; in most states the two groups had separate statewide schools, though in some they are combined.[4]

In 2003, in addition to Nebraska, which closed its residential deaf school in 1998, New Hampshire and Nevada do not have state-operated schools for the deaf.[4]
