This final report describes activities and accomplishments of a federally funded 3-year project in Delaware to improve programming and instructional/vocational opportunities available to students with deaf-blindness.

A chart details specific accomplishments, outcomes, and impact in the areas of workshops/inservice trainings, technical assistance, needs assessment, family activities, and interagency collaboration. Overall, the project provided 141 home interventions in the form of training or consultation, 150 staff training sessions, 22 assessments/evaluations, 66 liaison incidents, 123 team meetings, and 21 interagency team meetings. The report has sections providing information on the project's purpose and objectives, underlying basis and factors related to service delivery, accomplishments, outcomes, impact, and evaluation. Appendices include evaluation results, surveys used by the project, cooperative interagency team information, and information on the summer institute planning and referral/service coordination. (DB)
