The Kansas P.L.A.N. for Deaf-Blind: A Model System for Providing a Coordinated Life-Long Continuum of Services to Deaf-Blind Individuals and Their Families.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This volume contains six documents that represent the results of a year-long, statewide study and planning effort for developing a program to serve the deaf-blind population in Kansas. The first document discusses the perceived problems and includes a study of the history of national, regional and state efforts, the initial project goals and objectives, and a planning approach. The second document includes relevant service system constraints and funding sources. Results of a mail questionnaire study of the state's population of deaf-blind individuals to examine the demographics of the client population, the services needed, and the services provided are summarized in the third document. The fourth document outlines a series of criteria developed by the planning participants for the delivery system. The model system, its structure and dynamics, and the procedures for coordinating client services and agency activities are outlined in the fifth document. The final document consists of a time-based year-long implementation plan. (Author/NRB)
