Part 1: The Implications of Cultural Bias and Population Data on the Provision of TA

  • How life experiences limit or enhance your ability to connect with families
  • Identifying state partners who are already engaged in supporting families from culturally and linguistically diverse groups
  • Recruiting cultural ambassadors to support state deaf-blind project outreach efforts

This series has been organized as a result of a workgroup comprised of the following state deaf-blind projects: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, New England Consortium (NEC), New York, Texas, and USVI who, along with NCDB, are interested in exploring, defining, and implementing practices to improve outreach to families. 

Webinar series objectives include an increased understanding of:

  • Cultural bias and how it impacts the provision of TA.
  • The implications of state population data (e.g., cultures represented and languages spoken in each state).
  • State deaf-blind project capacity to serve families from various cultures.
  • How to forge relationships with state partners to serve families.
