What is a SSP? A Support Service Provider (SSP) is a trained professional who guides a person that is deaf-blind, providing visual and environmental information. SSPs empower Deaf-Blind people to live independently, enabling them to do their own mail, banking, shopping and other essential errands.

Pennsylvania Needs SSPs!

  • A clear understanding of Do’s & Don’ts, Roles & Responsibilities of a SSP
  • Hands-on experience guiding a DeafBlind individual
  • Personal experiences from a diverse DeafBlind panel
