Idaho Project for Children and Youth with Deaf-Blindness. Final Performance Report.
Greenfield, Robin G.
This report describes activities and accomplishments of the Idaho Project for Children and Youth with Deaf-Blindness, a 3-year federally supported project which provided training, technical assistance, and resources to families, educators, and other service providers working with infants, toddlers, children, and youth with deaf-blindness. An emphasis of the program was to increase the active participation of individuals with deaf-blindness in their home, school, and community. The project resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of individuals who were identified as having deaf-blindness. Among the information sources developed for both families and professionals were an annual summer institute and inservice sessions (serving approximately 1,500 people), quarterly newsletters, a film series, informational fact sheets, biweekly computer bulletins on the Idaho Special Net board, on-site trainings and technical assistance visits, and collaborative activities with various agencies across the state. Individual sections of the report describe the project's goals, objectives, accomplishments, issues, impact, and development of information sources. Appendices include sample transdisciplinary reports on specific children, assessment forms for training programs, a listing of materials in the project's resource lending library, and a flyer in both English and Spanish versions.
