Colorado Services to Children with Deafblindness. Final Performance Report: October 1, 1995 to September 30, 1999.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. Special Education Services Unit.
This final report describes accomplishments and activities of a four-year federally funded project to provide technical assistance to Colorado children and youth with deafblindness. Accomplishments are detailed for each of the following six project goals: (1) identification of children with deafblindness; (2) development and maintenance of in-state expertise; (3) delivery of technical assistance in a coordinated, friendly manner which supports community involvement; (4) provision of transition services for learners with deafblindness; (5) provision of opportunities for parent networking and support; and (6) maintenance and utilization of input from an advisory committee. Implications of the project are discussed, noting the unique needs of each child with deaf blindness and the inadequacy of general models of intervention to meet these children's highly specialized needs.
