2012 National Child Count of Children and Youth who are Deaf-Blind

National Child Count

The 2012 Deaf-Blind Child Count report is now available under the Group Materials Tab in the Child Count Initiative page. We will be posting the report with the other Child Count reports in the next few days.
The Data Maps also have the 2012 data included.

Theresa, good point, and exactly the purpose that a Technical Work Group will need to serve.
We need to make sure that the data elements in the Deaf-Blind Child Count support the information we need, and also are able to reflect the differences across states and territories.

Mark, remember some of our states do not participate with Common Core, so will be important when the discussions start around db child count, that there is an assumption that all states participate. In fact, it sounds like to me that lots of states are "opting out", so let's keep the Child Count very specific to global information.

Michelle, one of our first tasks related to the deaf-blind child count in the new grant is to convene a technical work group to review all aspects of the process. However, this effort WILL NOT impact the upcoming December 1, 2013 child count, so no, there will be no substantive changes this year.

I would suspect that for the December 1, 2014child count there will be differences around state assessment data (to make it consistent with Common Core assessments), some tweaks to educational placement at ages 3-5, some minor language clean up, and probably the elimination of several variables. The only addition might be around Interveners. I don't foresee any other additions to the collection process.
