Rich History of Service

Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB) has more than 150 years of service to people with hearing and vision loss.  Born in 1858 out of Dr. Joseph Henry Johnson’s love for his brother, who was deaf, AIDB has become one of the nation’s most comprehensive education and service programs for the deaf and blind.  

With a long history of dedication and results to back it up, Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind has proven to be a place where, it says, “what if” becomes “I can.”
