Area Centers for Services to Deaf-Blind Children in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. Final Report.
Hammer, Edwin K.
To assess the educational needs within the region, a survey of deaf-blind individuals was conducted in 1969 involving 279 teachers, 85 United Fund agencies, 12 caseworkers, 20 education service centers, and ten parents. The survey resulted in the identification of 454 deaf blind children and adults in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. The project report also included a discussion of parent services, professional development, prototype models of services (medical, interagency, itinerant teacher, communications, residential, diagnostic, evaluative, and public school day programs), and recommendations for improved services. Tables provide incidence figures and distribution data on deaf blind children in the region, and appendixes contain information regarding the advisory committees, related references, workshop activities, and equipment.
