Greetings everyone - Please welcome Marilyn Trader a regional rep for the southeast region. She has been an integral part in HKNC's efforts to serve Deaf-Blind individuals with additional disabilities.
I'm thrilled to see the big event happening in Georgia for the Southeast Region (thread by Carol Darrah) and even more opportunities finally coming around for our young adults with additional disabilities. We at the Helen Keller National Center know the importance of creative assessment tools, modifications to teaching styles to meet our diverse population and inventive ways to have successful outcomes for our students to be integrated in the community. We continue to develop other programs to meet these needs, such as the Deaf-Blind Immersion Experience.
- What is happening locally to meet our young adults who require such creative assessments?
- What type of vocational exploration is being done at this time for our young adults?
- What type of collaboration is being done with our Deaf-Blind Projects to reach our young adults with intellectual disabilities?
- Who is in your circle of support to reach these long-term goals?
Let us know.
Looking forward to this discussion.
Marilyn Trader, SE Regional Representative (KY, NC, SC, TN, PR)
