This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the Wyoming Deaf-Blind Grant, a 3-year federally supported project to identify children who have deaf-blindness and to provide technical assistance in the development of educational services for these children. Major accomplishments of the project included: identification of more children with deaf-blindness (from a total of 23 in 1992 to 36 in 1995); conducting biannual clinics for deaf/blind/multi-impaired children; dissemination of information about the needs of children with dual sensory impairments; and technical assistance to families and service providers. Extensive appendices include a listing of the technical assistance training sessions provided, and various letters, forms, and reports of the project. These latter include the following: a sample student assessment; sample consultation reports; "Developing Prelanguage Communication in the Severely Handicapped: An Interpretation of the Van Dijk Method" (Robert D. Stillman and Christy W. Battle); "Overview of the Van Dijk Curricular Approach" (Stephanie Z. C.
