OPELIKA, Ga. (WTVM) - People in East Alabama who are deaf and or blind don’t have to go far away from home in order to become educated.

The Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind - Opelika Regional Center is now open to serve Chambers, Lee, Macon, Russell and Tallapoosa counties.

The center is located at 355 Dunlop Drive in Opelika.

“I’m thrilled to know that deaf people are going to have the best access, the best support and the best services from the Opelika regional center and it will also provide deaf people all the opportunities they need. They can teach sign language classes here so that hearing people and the general public can learn. It’s a perfect place to meet with other deaf people so we can congregate and socialize.”

The Alabama institute for Deaf and Blind is the nation’s most comprehensive education and service program serving more than 36,000 individuals.
