Meet and Greet with Megan Cote

Family Engagement

Hello Everyone!
I am excited to be starting in my new role as Project Specialist for Early Identification and Referral as well as Family Engagement for NCDB. Having come from the Kansas Deaf-Blind Project, I hope to bring my experience working closely with families and educational teams to the national project. Please join me tomorrow- Wednesday, January 21st- for the "Meet and Greet" so we can continue the critical conversation for next steps in coordinating efforts around these 2 initiatives.
Our discussion will focus on the following:
In your current role, what might NCDB do to help support you in your Family Engagement and Early Identification and Referral Efforts?
What do you see as holes/ needs in supporting families of learners who experience deaf- blindness?
What does your organization presently do to support families? Has it been successful?
Do you have any materials/ info/ ideas you would be willing to share with others engaged in this same valuable work?
I am eager to learn from all of you and hope to "see" you tomorrow. To join the meeting, please go to:

Thanks to all for your kind wishes. I am now 4 weeks into my new role and am looking forward to all of the collaborative opportunities ahead. There are so many great things happening at NCDB and with the state deaf-blind projects that I feel fortunate to be a part of it all. We are working hard to add more resources to the EI/R tool kit so keep a close eye on it!

Hi Megan! I was sorry not to join the Meet and Greet on Wednesday, as I had another work commitment . However, so looking forward to working with you especially around the subject of Family Engagement. I will look for the link in hopes that Wednesday's Meet the Greet was recorded.

HI Megan. Congrats on your new position with NCDB! I currently sit on the Family Engagement TWG and I look forward to working with you as you settle into your new role. I was unable to be on the call yesterday, but I'd be happy to speak with you about the work the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation is doing on behalf of families and my role as the Director of Outreach. Any way we can work together will be wonderful.
