Indiana Deaf-Blind Project. Final Performance Report, 10-1-89 to 9-30-92.
Goehl, Karen S.
The Indiana Deaf-Blind Project was designed to enhance and further develop coordinated direct services to children and youth with deaf-blindness for whom Indiana is not obligated to make available a free appropriate public education. These include children from birth through age 2 and 18 through 21. The work of the project was focused on: (1) identification, registration, and tracking of students with dual sensory impairments; (2) delivery of technical assistance to service providers and families; (3) maintenance of a resource materials center; (4) development of a network of parents and families; (5) development of policy guidelines with respect to the appropriate education of children and youth with deaf-blindness; and (6) dissemination of information about the project. Project activities also included development of a monograph featuring stories and articles about Indiana families, inservice training workshops, and a mentor teacher training project. This final report discusses project goals and objectives, accomplishments, outcomes, and future directions; provides samples of project products, including a project brochure, newsletter, and monograph; and supplies information for ordering a technology module and videotape. Appendixes contain workshop agendas and other program administration items. (JDD)
