Services for Deaf-Blind Children and Youth. Final Report. Montana Application for Funding for Fiscal Years 1992-95.
Roman, Francisco J.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of Montana's 1992-1995 Services for Deaf-Blind Children and Youth program funded under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The project focused on provision of technical assistance to parents, programs, and agencies (public and private) serving children with deaf-blindness. The project improved networking among schools, the Part H Developmental Disabilities Division of Social and Rehabilitation Services, and the Office of Public Instruction. Project implementation resulted in doubling (from 36 in 1991 to 75 in 1994) the number of children identified as having deaf-blindness in Montana. The project also provided seven inservice workshops including a yearly parent retreat/workshop. A satisfaction survey mailed to 100 parents, teachers, and service providers indicated a high degree of satisfaction with all project objectives evaluated. The needs assessment survey used to identify parent and teacher training needs is appended. (DB)
