Kentucky Services to Children Who Are Deaf-Blind, 1995-1999. Final Report.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.; Kentucky Univ., Lexington. Coll. of Education.
This final report discusses the outcomes of a 4-year project designed to identify all children in Kentucky who are deaf-blind and provide training and technical assistance to improve the quality of special education and related services in Kentucky for children ages birth through 21 who are deaf-blind. The children are in integrated environments with programs designed to lead toward full community participation. Outcomes of the project included: (1) identifying students in Kentucky with deaf-blindness; (2) collaborating with agencies statewide to facilitate the delivery of a comprehensive array of services for students who are deaf-blind; (3) providing technical assistance on behalf of students on the Kentucky deaf-blind census; (4) supporting families of children on the deaf-blind census; (5) coordinating preservice and inservice training regarding deaf-blindness as part of the Kentucky's Comprehensive System of Personnel Development; and (6) coordinating transition planning through person-centered planning processes. The report discusses the context of the project, goals, activities, problems encountered and solutions, and implications for practice. A videotape, "Transdisciplinary Activity-Based Assessment for Learners with Deafblindness and Other Multiple Disabilities," hosted by Jennifer Grisham Brown, developed as part of the project. (CR)
