Arizona Deaf-Blind Project. Final Performance Report.
Arizona State School for the Deaf and Blind, Tucson.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of a 3-year federally supported project in Arizona to identify all children with deaf-blindness, empower families to advocate for their children, and train service providers. Major accomplishments of the project included: a 21 percent increase in identified children; provision of early intervention services through the Parent Outreach Program; direct services to 27 students, ages 14-22, involved in transition planning; publication of five newsletters; development of a parent/professional lending library; planning and implementation of annual Family Learning Weekends which served 29 families; and development of a transdisciplinary assessment team and a training model. Individual sections of the report describe the project's purpose, goals and objectives, accomplishments, findings, problems solved, effects, recommendations, and products developed. Much of the report consists of attachments such as brochures, a training agenda, a list of the items in the lending library, newsletters, and a draft of a manual on program standards. (DB)
