Alabama Inst. for Deaf and Blind, Talladega.
This final report discusses the activities and outcomes of a 4-year federally funded project designed to meet the critical need in Alabama to provide effective practices in the delivery of educational services to children and youth with deaf-blindness from birth through 21 years of age and to their families and service providers. The project accomplished the following: (1) increased the local capacity of local educational agencies, intermediate units, and community agencies to deliver effective services to children who are deaf-blind through timely and accurate identification; (2) provided pre-service and/or in-service training to parents, paraprofessionals, professionals, and related service personnel preparing to serve, or serving, children with deaf-blindness; (3) facilitated parental involvement in the education of their children with deaf-blindness; (4) provided consultative and counseling services for professionals, paraprofessionals, parents and others who play a role in the lives of children with deaf-blindness; (5) assisted programs and agencies in promoting the integration of children with deaf-blindness; and (6) developed and implemented procedures to evaluate the effectiveness of services provided to children with deaf-blindness. The report discusses the project's context, activities, program evaluation, and implications for practice. Appendices include a sample registry, population map, child count data, technical assistance samples, and sample presentations/publications. (CR)
