The vision of the Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and the Blind is to promote and maintain excellent and comprehensive educational opportunities for every deaf, hard of hearing, blind, and visually impaired child in Idaho which shall lead to the highest potential for adult life of independence and self-sufficiency; a meaningful personal, family, and community life; and a useful, productive occupational life.
