California Deaf-Blind Services is seeking applicants for a full-time Educational Specialist position based in Southern California. For information about the position and application procedures visit the Job ID # 5411 posting on the San Francisco State University website.





For detailed information on technical assistance and to download a request form, please visit the Services section of our website.


The process for technical assistance has changed. CDBS now provides two types of technical assistance (TA) individualized for specific children/students:

  • Focused TA: Short-term assistance via distance technology for basic needs of a single team member and/or family.
  • Comprehensive TA: Intensive, sustained assistance designed to address multiple challenges faced by numerous educational team members, including family members.

Please note: The technical assistance request must come directly from the person(s) who will be receiving the service as we cannot accept referrals from third parties (i.e., you cannot request technical assistance for someone else).

If you have questions about what type of TA might be right for your specific situation, contact Maurice Belote, CDBS Project Coordinator, at or 415-405-7558.
