CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina School or the Deaf and Blind is again offering services to residents along the state's coast.

The school, which has a main campus in Spartanburg, opens an outreach center in Charleston on Monday.

The center will offer early intervention as well as vision and hearing services. It will also offer sign language interpreting among other services for those who are deaf or blind and their families.

The school operated the outreach center for more than 20 years but was forced to close it because of budget cuts five years ago.

The school offers educational programs for students who are in preschool through 12th grade at its Spartanburg campus. It also offers specialized vision and hearing services in school districts and in homes statewide.
