Early Identification and Referral
Interested in TA around Early Identification and Referral?
State or Multi-State Deaf-Blind Projects can apply at any time for Technical Assistance (TA) focused on early identification and referral of children who are or are suspected of being deaf-blind. This TA will focus on implementation of evidenced-based practices to:
• Assess a state's needs related to early identification and referral and identify effective strategies to address them
• Increase knowledge about the impact of deaf-blindness on early learning among one or more state systems serving children birth through age two
• Improve identification of infants and toddlers with combined vision and hearing loss by Part C providers, EHDI personnel, the medical community or other community programs serving children birth through age two
• Increase referrals to state deaf-blind projects and other resources available to identified children, their families and early intervention providers
