Brown, DiAnn; Gaar, Sara J.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of Alaska's 3-year program on services for children and youth with dual sensory impairments. The project provided technical assistance to local education agencies, infant learning programs, and other educators. It also provided support and training to families of children with deaf-blindness. Primary services provided by the project were technical assistance at community sites, consultation and training to parents, consultation and technical assistance to service providers throughout the state, support for transition planning, dissemination of information, and maintenance of census data on Alaskan children with deaf-blindness. Ongoing coordination and interagency collaboration occurred with public, private, local, and national resources. This report describes the project's conceptual framework and justification, goals and objectives, activities and accomplishments, problems, evaluation, and impact. Appendices include a listing of project library materials, results of satisfaction surveys, and samples of project-developed products (including a student referral packet, and information and screening forms concerning Usher's syndrome).
