It has ten regional offices and more than 40 affiliated agencies, a National Training Team and an Older Adult Program. HKNC is a partner in the National Technical Assistance Consortium for Children and Young Adults who are deaf-blind and with DB-LINK, a clearinghouse for information on children who are deaf-blind. HKNC also maintains a national registry of individuals who are deaf-blind.
