RISE Autism (Based in Decatur or Talladega)


The Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB) is the world's most comprehensive education, rehabilitation, and service program serving individuals of all ages who are deaf, blind, deafblind, and multi-disabled and their families. Founded in 1858, AIDB serves more than 36,000 infants, toddlers, children, adults, and seniors with hearing and vision loss throughout Alabama each year.

Our services literally span a lifetime, from birth to senior adulthood. AIDB includes five campuses in Talladega, ten regional centers located in Birmingham, Decatur, Dothan, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Opelika, Talladega, Tuscaloosa, and Muscle Shoals with programs that range from early and senior intervention to traditional and nontraditional education services in residential and outreach settings and a manufacturing facility that is the state's largest employer of adults who are blind and deaf.

Our services are offered in partnership with AIDB programs, Local Education Agencies (LEAs), the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS), and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE).


As a member of our team, you will have a crucial role in fulfilling AIDB's mission to provide services to individuals with sensory impairments and ASD across the state.
