Project L.I.F.E. (Lifelong Impact from Education). Final Report.
Giangreco, Michael F.; Cloninger, Chigee J.
Project LIFE (Lifelong Impact From Education) was a 3-year federally funded program to develop, field test, and disseminate a collaborative model that increases the capacity of neighborhood schools and local education agencies to provide appropriate educational services to children with deaf-blindness in general education settings and improve students' individually determined valued life outcomes. The model's major steps involve determining valued life outcomes from a family-centered perspective and developing a student's educational program components and supports referenced to those outcomes, addressing those educational program components in integrated settings using variations of an established problem-solving method, and evaluating the impact of the educational program by referencing it to changes in the student's valued life outcomes. This final report includes goals and objectives of the project, the conceptual framework and description of the Project LIFE model, description of research studies, methodological and logistical problems, and annotated bibliography of 10 major project products, and a summary of dissemination efforts and evidence of project impact.
