Welcome to the Arkansas CAYSI Project

CAYSI serves Arkansas children with dual sensory impairments and additional disabilities, otherwise known as deafblindness. We strive to identify the children in the state, promote academic achievement, and improve lives for children with dual sensory impairments through the education and collaboration of special and regular educators, families, early intervention providers, specialists, paraprofessionals, as well as OT’s, PT’s, SLP’s.

Please contact us and/or refer your student.
