Niemi, Christine; And Others
This project was designed to provide technical assistance, transition services, coordination of services, participation in state planning activities, and dissemination of information to assure educational services for Alaska children and youth (birth through 21) with deaf-blindness. The goals, objectives, and activities of the project focused on: (1) ensuring appropriate educational, vocational, and related services for Alaskan children and youth with deaf-blindness through the availability of on-site technical assistance provided by project staff; (2) provision of comprehensive and appropriate assessments through monitoring, advocacy, and direct assistance by project staff; (3) increase in the availability of trained professional, paraprofessional, and ancillary personnel through on-site training sessions and a variety of distance delivery and statewide educational opportunities; (4) provision of consultative, training, and counseling services to families with children with deaf-blindness; and (5) the maintenance of an accurate record of the numbers of children and youth with deaf-blindness in Alaska. This final report specifies the end-of-project status of each objective, provides statistical data on the impact of the project, and includes copies of products developed and a library list of professional materials.
