The Kansas P.L.A.N. for Deaf-Blind: A Team Approach to Planning. A Model System for Providing A Coordinated Life-Long Continuum of Services to Deaf-Blind Individuals and Their Families. Process Document.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This document provides the guidelines to develop a state-wide plan for a continuum of services for deaf-blind individuals. This paper extrapolates from the development of a model plan in Kansas a general set of procedures and policies that can be used by other states and proposes a series of steps for developing a plan for deaf-blind services. The rationale for such a project is described and the needs of the deaf-blind population are discussed. Activities involved in developing a state-wide plan are outlined and developmental work of the model is described. The selection of a project coordinator and the formation of planning groups are detailed. Procedures for recruiting steering committee and task force members are recommended. Methods of planning and conducting group meetings are suggested and project goals, objectives, and activities are enumerated. The appendices contain various survey and evaluation forms and other material relevant to the model. (NRB)
